An interview of Nas has resurfaced in light of Lifetime’s much-talked-about Surviving R. Kelly docu-series where he claimed that Jay-Z was indulging in young girls with the controversial R&B icon.
The “World Is Yours” rapper sat down with Wendy Williams and said he had been in the studio with R. Kelly on multiple occasions and did not witness any sexual misconduct.
Nas went on to drop a few bombshells about Beyonce’s husband by saying that not only did he see R. Kelly with teenagers, he was also “be indulging in some 14-year-olds.”
He then had this to say: “I don’t put out no movies, that’s not my style. I could have shown the R. Kelly video that everybody’s talking about, made fun of it and shown Jay hanging out. When Jay and them was in there doing Best Of Both Worlds, you can’t tell me Jay didn’t see a 14-year-old girl come in the studio and sit on R. Kelly’s lap. You gonna sit here and tell me, that working on that album, he ain’t never see no 14-year-old girl come in the vicinity?”
The hip_hop legend continued to throw R. Kelly under the bus by revealing: “You’ve seen it go down. I’ve been around R. Kelly … I’ve been on tour with him; it didn’t last too long. But I been around him. I didn’t see no 14-year-old, but I talked to the man and I seen there’s a little problem there. The brother needs help, and I pray for him. But if I sit here and did an album about women with him, I’m definitely maybe indulging in… he had to be indulging in some 14-year-olds.”
One person reacted to the interview by saying: “Soooo, Nas said, when he was around Kelly, no young girls was around, but he know for a fact when J worked with Kelly, a 14 yr old came and sat on Kelly lap, how do you know this??? I need answers.”
Another commenter shared: “Who cares about R Kelly and Jay Z. Leave Jay out of it. As for R Kelly those girls no matter what age wanted to give it up, they like the D, and he has not made a cult. Blame their parents for pimpin out their daughters to get money.”
A third follower stated: “First off Nas said nothing wrong he did a tour with him that didn’t last long spoke to him seen he was off left that alone jay z worked on a whole album with him then backed out when the heat got real because he definitely seen some shit don’t act like J ain’t cancel the best of both worlds tour because of it this interview old af anyway, but it’s true.”
Nas was furious at Jay-Z when he made those comments.
