XXL recruited the Odd Future ringleader to interview Nas for its November issue, and while the full conversation isn't online yet, we do have some hard-hitting, food-related excerpts. Specifically, we find out whether Nas enjoys cheese. The relevant exchange:
Do you like cheese?
I love cheese.
Cheddar or Swiss?
Swiss. Cheddar for the most of my life. Today, it’s Swiss.
Sick. That’s cool. I love fuckin’ cheddar. That’s my shit.
Why? Why did you ask?
I don’t know. I just want to know. I don’t know. What do you do, like, in your spare time? Do you play Xbox or anything?
No, I’ve actually spent a lot of time being lonely as fuck, you know? It’s like you just do nothing.
Oops, so that took a turn. Was it the Swiss cheese that made him lonely? Or is the Swiss preference an outward manifestation of an isolationist bent? Most important:Where does Nas stand on Cheez Whiz? We demand answers.
