EBONY's Power 100 issue is said to be for the doers, risk takers and makers of things. In the issue they will celebrate the accomplishments and innovations of the creative and push the Obama progressive movement forward! One of the creatives in particular is NAS! Or as some call him, Nasty. Esco. The GOAT, or Nasir Jones.
In his feature, Nas says: “When I see injustice it hurts, so I speak about it. It just so happens I might be wearing a Dries Van Noten suit while I’m speaking. I like things in the world that are appealing to the eye. So why lie about it?” he acknowledges, mentioning his penchant for Italian shoes. “One thing that kills me is these holier than thou, super clean phonies who walk around like they live in heaven and they’re a step above everybody else. No, we’re human beings striving to be the best we can be. We’re striving for greatness all the time.”
