Nas straddles the fine line between wokeness and pseudo-intellectualism on Nasir. Many of these songs span the African diaspora and America’s centuries-old war against blackness.
He raps about the “black Egyptian gods,” SWAT being created to suppress the Black Panthers, the Willie Lynch letter being a hoax, the lesser conspiracy that J. Edgar Hoover was black, and the rapper’s (unfounded) claim that “Fox News was started by a black dude.”
(Media mogul Rupert Murdoch founded Fox News in 1996, and Roger Ailes oversaw the network’s direction from its inception until his death last year.) The album references Othello, the recent Philly Starbucks incident, Emmett Till, Jet magazine, and Colin Kaepernick’s protest of police shootings. Across its seven tracks, Nasir raises its pro-black, pan-African fist at nearly every turn.” – Pitchfork
