Back in July, rapper Nas was a special guest on CNN. He spoke during Anderson Cooper’s ”Race and Justice In America” segment. The Hip-Hop legend discussed racism, prejudice and more. He had some pretty candid words on racism in America.
“We tend to judge each other. If I don’t know something about you, Anderson, I’m going to judge you based on a bad experience I had with another white person. If you don’t know me, and you walk down the street and you see me, my pants are hanging, you’re going to assume the worst. We need to learn how to deal with each other basically. At this point, America is looking like barbarians,” said Nas.
During the segment, Nas styled in a $721 Givenchy Crew Neck Sweater.
