I love how the media trys to take something good and poison it. In Nas’s open letter he is pleading to young America to stop the violence after the tragic death of Derrion Albert . But of course the media will bring up the most violent lyrics he has spit in “Shoot Em Up”. Nas represented himself very intelligently and compassionate. I always gave Kudos to Nas for being gangsta but also making songs stating that you dont have to go through what hes been through. I respect Nas for writing that letter and hope it reaches young America.
