Despite a public divorce last summer, Nas and Kelis have managed to keep the details of their separation private. Now the rapper is taking his ex-wife to task on a new song.
Nas addresses Kelis in a newly-added verse from “Strong Will Continue,” his collaboration with Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley from their joint album Distant Relatives. The former couple has a 6-month-old son named Knight together.
On the track, he makes reference to a 1993 incident where martial arts film star Bruce Lee’s son Brandon was killed on set of The Crow. “Twisted and mangled, sort of like Bruce Lee life/ Cursed with his son Brandon/ If that’s you and me Knight/ I pray our fate’s greater.”
The 36-year-old MC is less than pleased with his reported court-ordered spousal and child support payments of $52,000 per month. “How in the hell am I supposed to stay comfy/ When I pay child support, alimony monthly,” he raps.
And as for rumors that he cheated on his wife, Nas has something to say on that topic as well. “So I’ve stuck with some married women so fine, cheating while their husband rushing on the 40-yard line/ Wonder if this is what my ex did the whole time.”
