Nas Celebrates Turning 40

Veteran hip hop star Nas celebrated his 40th birthday in style. The Queens native partied with friends in New York City, and spoke to Hot 97s Miss Info about reaching the milestone in his life and career.

âI just take it all in stride,â he said. "It really feels likeâman, I always grew up around older people. I always talked to older people. So, some of my friends turned 40 a couple of years ago, so they mess with me like I donât know what itâs like. Now, itâs one of the best feelings I ever had. Iâm just blessed. Itâs a miracle. Iâm so blessed.â

But he doesn't believe he's only now becoming a thoughtful elder statesmen.

âNo I wouldnât say [iâm] âmore thoughtful,â" he said. "I think I was thoughtful back then when I was younger. The speed changes, when it comes to trying to get on and then once youâre on you have to adjust your life with it.â

âWhen you adjust your life it means you got new things in your life happening," he said. "You move, you become a businessman, a father. That matters. That weighs in.â
