Culture: Rapper Nas tells his Chicago “warriors” to stop the violence

  • I remember feeling like I was the hardest ‘n*gga’ breathing. And I couldn’t wait to prove it. But let’s think. What are we really proving?? And proving what to who??
  • Nas • In an “Open Letter To Young Warriors In Chicago,” a lengthy note written to his still-growing peers (specifically gang members) in the Windy City. He goes further, noting that when he was growing up, others “chose the dumbest things to go the hardest for. I remember seeing deaths over 8 ball jackets, Fila sneakers, and name plate chains.” After the Derrion Albert incident, his words take on extra poignancy.  • source
