Watch Nas Take On Colbert

    Previously Nas brought “Daughters” to Letterman, and last night he brought his charm and Life Is Good track “The Don” to be Colbert-bumped on The Colbert Report. He needed a lot of the former to battle Colbert in the interview portion–at one point Nas had to actually say “the music is not about quilts and Fig Newtons”–where the host needled the rapper on his album, his name, and his ex-wife Kelis. Nas actually gets pretty emotional talking about the latter, but leave it to Colbert to ask “Was there any problem with the fact that her milkshake brought all the boys to the yard?”

    Watch the interview below, and check out the reggae-rap explosion that is “The Don.”
