Nas Talks Having COVID-19, Says It Was “Mentally and Physically Hard”

During a recent interview with Ebony, legendary rapper Nas revealed he had COVID-19 and said it was very hard on him.

“I caught COVID in late October,” Nas said. “This is the first time [I’m] mentioning it. It was a tough time. It was mentally and physically hard.”

“It’s just today’s world, with chemical warfare, crazy politics, racism, food shortages, police malpractice, Black-on-Black murder,” he continued. “The human spirit is being tested. I think that God has a plan for all of this. But right now, we’re in a serious time,” he added when describing how the virus just adds to the horrific state of the world we live in.

The pandemic has been an eye-opener for all of us and a reminder of how quickly life can change. The New York rapper also told the magazine how he’d liked to be remembered.

“I just wanna become as great as the ones I came up thinking were the greatest,” Nas said when asked about his music and fame. “Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap, LL, Slick Rick, Ice Cube—the list goes on. I just wanna be able to look at myself and say that I did what they are doing.”
