The Life Files recently caught up with Nas for an interview on the roof top of his Manhattan hotel.

As they chopped it up, Nas gives his thoughts on the more basic rap songs that dominate the radio in 2012, and he goes on to name a few rappers who are holding hip hop by having their own unique style.

As the Q&A continued, Nas spoke on Barack Obama, and states that he doesn’t see how anyone could take the job of President and not go crazy, and that he’s also hoping he gets a second term.

Nas then goes on to speak on Lauryn Hill and admits that she may be the most talented person that he’s worked with.
