“There are some conversations me and Jay are having about doing some more tour dates, Nas said last week in the U.K. the day before taking the stage at Royal Albert Hall. “Nothing is confirmed, but there are some serious conversations about Africa and a few other countries.”
“I would like to do the Africa thing,” he continued. “And that would be about it, because it’s the most important thing for Africans to see two African-Americans, their lost children, who’s been the head of hip-hop culture. … A lot of our verses are misinterpreted in other countries, and they get the N-word wrong and they don’t understand why we come up like this and why we say the things we say. So when they say it and when they do it, they just doing the gangsta mentality. They don’t understand where it comes from, so we want to bring that connection from America to Africa and show them what we mean and show the brotherhood and show that me and this brother is about peace.”
“Insiders in Jackson’s camp said she is in talks with Timberlake’s people to appear together in “some sort of big, live show like the Grammys or the Oscars” as the ultimate publicity stunt.
The two have not really spoken to each other since the infamous, breast-baring Super Bowl incident in 2004 – in which, during a performance of Timberlake’s song “Rock Your Body,” a so-called “wardrobe malfunction” exposed Jackson’s pierced right nipple on national TV, subjecting the halftime show to worldwide ridicule and costing CBS $550,000 in fines.”
