Like many other artists, Nas admits he's not putting his support behind any particular presidential candidate, but the rap star did have some amiable words regarding Senator Barack Obama.

"I'd love to see Barack Obama become the president. He's the face of America, hands down," the rapper told MTV. "There's no two ways to look at it, man. The man's got what it takes. He's serious."

While the rapper was willing to talk politics, he was a little less forthcoming when it came to divulging details of his much-delayed controversially-titled upcoming album, dubbed '[insert N-word here].' "I don't wanna reveal everybody that I worked with yet," Nas said. "Because I'm still working [and] still finishing up the record. And I think I want that to speak for itself."
