Nas and Dave Grohl

T.I., Rick Ross, and 50 Cent have all faced the wrath of Chelsea Handler. But Nas avoided the hot seat during his visit to “Chelsea Lately” when Foo Fighters founder Dave Grohl took over hosting duties for Grammy week. The hip-hop icon and rock legend discussed the Grammys, hip-hop beefs, and their daughters.

Nas, who is nominated for four Grammys at this weekend’s show, feels hip-hop deserves more shine at the awards. “It’s cool. I feel it could be a little bit more love though,” he said. “Hip-hop is making a lot of noise. It should get some more spotlight.”

Grohl also questioned him about the severity of beef in hip-hop. “Once you say it, you gotta ride with it, you gotta be true. Hip-hop is really standoffish. It’s really competitive. It’s really about who’s number one all the time. Sometimes it gets outta hand.”

Nas thanked his daughter Destiny for inspiring his Grammy-nominated single “Daughters” and was asked whether boys feel intimidated to date her. “I thought they would be, but these kids today… These kids are not playing,” laughed Nas. “I had to get strong and let ’em know.”
