Nas Appears On CNN To Talk Kids & Violence; Says Rap Influencing Violence Is A Joke

Rapper Nas appeared on CNN in an interview with Don Lemon to discuss the impact of rap music on children and his open letter to youth following the deadly beating of Chicago teen Derrion Albert.

When asked by Lemon if he feels violent lyrics influence kids to act violently, Nas answered “never” and explained “violence and war is the things that built this country,” even going on to say “a rap song in the 21st Century influencing violence is a joke.”

However, he agreed with the belief of Derrion Albert’s mom that pop culture, movie and rap had some influence on those kids to act out that day.
