Nas Explains How to Save the Music Business — Say What!
Nas weighed in on the music business’s reclining sales recently, saying “The game messed up cause everybody gangsta, but they prima donna’s. They sittin there like ‘how do we get to number one? How do how do we sell a million the first…’ N—a, put out music! That’s whats wrong with the music game. It ain’t the music business, it’s n—as and they s–t! Just put the s–t out man, if the s–t is right and you feel good about it, put the s–t out, man.” So that’s what accounts for last week’s sales being the worst since 1991. Thanks Nas. [Bossip]
Lady Gaga cleared the air about her rumored drug/eating problems, “I certainly don’t have an eating problem. A little MDMA [Ecstasy] once in a while never killed anybody, but I really don’t do drugs. I don’t touch cocaine any more. I don’t smoke. Well, maybe a single cigarette – with whiskey – while I’m working, because it just frees my mind a little bit. But I care about my voice. The thrill of my voice being healthy on stage is really special. I take care of myself.” Nice. [TimesUK]
