Okay. When Nas is defending you using the N-word, that's when you know there should be NO COMPLAINTS!
After Gwyneth Paltrow tweeted a photo of herself on stage with Jay-Z and Kanye West, she captioned it, "n***as in paris for real!" Because you know… THAT'S THE NAME OF THE SONG.
Or! Another possibility… she could have been referring to all of them (herself included) as the slang term. Not just Jay and Ye. We mean, c'mon… her best friend is Beyonce. We don't think there's any racism there.
Unfortunately, some people took it that way. And Nas is NOT liking it!
Gurl gets a pass in his book! He says:
"I would slap the s*** out of somebody for Gwyneth Paltrow. She’s the homie, she’s cool. Gwyneth gets a pass. Real people get a pass. We know what this s*** is. We don’t interrupt Italians when they say 'Wop' to each other. They gonna punch you in the mouth if you interrupt that. Don’t interrupt us. We pick and choose.
Some of us will get angrier about it than others; but some people get a pass. The people that I know who are cool and real n****s, Gwyneth Paltrow is a real n****, that’s my homie. That’s how I’m on it. Some people get a pass."
So that's that!!
Anyone who knows what's up knows she wasn't saying it with any derogatory connotation. If she was, that would be a WHOLE different story!
If it wasn't the name of the song, THAT would be a whole different story too. But it was… and she needed a caption! Shiiiz!
