Nas Goes ‘Crazy’ for Lady Gaga Song

Nas and Lady Gaga

Everyone’s been talking about Lady Gaga’s new single “Born This Way,” but the most surprising reaction may be from Nas, who bestowed praise on the dance floor anthem.

“Oh shit. Craziest track I’ve heard in a while,” tweeted the Queensbridge rapper after hearing the highly-anticipated record.

“Born This Way” rocketed to the top of iTunes charts worldwide within hours of its release, while Gaga’s album of the same name will follow on May 23. Catch her performing it live at tomorrow’s Grammys.

    I think it’s good/surprising to see rappers showing their approval for songs like this. There’s a history of homophobia in hip-hop culture so more power to Nas.

    I can understand rappers owning up to enjoying a pop song now and then but out of every great pop song that has come out within the last couple of years, he’s praising this one?! Please! The song sounds dated and corny.

    You have to be gay to say the song is good

    Lol this bish copied Madonna express yourself song same melody and lyrics and shes getting praised lmfao. I hate how everyone give this girl a pass “SHES AN ORIGINAL” ummm nope.

  18. MykolAnthony

    wow @ nell i was scrolling down to say that same shit…what im sayin is we can all bust out w old cassette tapes if we wanted to listen to madonna, she had people waiting for that garbage

    I commend nas for his honesty…and yes Gaga is original…you haters need to get a life. She’s broken the iTunes record and she’s #1 in 23 countries on iTunes…can your fave do that?….I’ll wait……

  20. MykolAnthony

    if it wasnt for marilyn manson, madonna and tori amos there would be no lady gaga, thats like saying nicki minaj is an original.

    THE POP QUEEN! ONE AND ONLY : LADY GAGA :p

    just cuz shes selling alot doesnt mean shes original, it means she’s catchy, shes a creation that the music indusrty needs to make money. if u ask me, they are selling her style more than her music, that the way of the world these days ..its like people do music just to get big or successful, and for the money…im a singer /songwriter am i gonna become some kinda space creature or charactor to be noticed…NOPE cuz IM an Original!

    [Reply]

  23. Kevin

    @mykol…and you’re right and she has paid her respects to Madonna countless times…she even pays homage to Britney. Gaga is fully aware of the foundation to her success…now marylin manson…i beg to differ…

    [Reply]

  24. Kevin

    @mykol…and Madonna didn’t need and explicitly sexual image to sell records? i smell contradiction…

    [Reply]

  25. MykolAnthony

    but i do love her music dont get me wrong, it just makes me laugh that people think that these people go home ,sit on the couch with 6 ft shoulder pads and 2 ft stilettos and make weird faces at their family with crystalized sunglasses…doubt it

    [Reply]

  26. MykolAnthony

    I dont have a prob w none of these artist i just dont like what ppl have to do to be BIG these days.ive seen clips of gaga singin behind a piano w long black hair talented as hell, my thing is, why do u have to become a charactor when your already talented

  34. jamie j

    This is a joke right? If this is the song that has you most excited in a while, the keep you a@$ in retirement. Giving this girl way too much credit for some dance tunes. People are getting her persona confused with her talent. She’s good and all but Beyonce…kidding. Doesn’t really matter either way, her monsters are eating it up so cha ching either way.

  36. really

    @ARJ
    Nas is hardly irrelevant when an entire post is made about him liking a song…but yet you took the time to comment on his opinion! He must be relevant enough for your hating a** to make comment on his opinion!
    @XTINA STAN…Nas isn’t thinking about you or ex for that matter….can you haters try a new approach besides bringing about his ex in a lame attempt to try and hate. Haters are so repetitive!
    Damn when did saying a song is “crazy” turn into a reason to hate!

  37. lys

    @ mykol ur question: why do u have to become a charactor when your already talented?!
    the answer is quite simple: she’s an entertainer on and off the stage…
