Nas has vowed to “keep his head up” now he is divorced from Kelis.
The rap superstar’s new album chronicles the time he spent married to singer Kelis, their divorce and being a father. The singer does not hold back with his personal accounts in the lyrics on Life Is Good, which was released this month.
“Life is still good, no matter what, you have to keep your head up,” Nas told MTV. “With life, you take [it] there's wins, there's losses, there's bad, there's joy, pain, all the emotions...”
One track on the album centres on the hip-hop star’s relationship heartbreak. Nas says the song is a dedication to that time in his life.
“‘Bye Baby’ was a song that had to be done. It gets into my relationship that I had [with ex-wife Kelis] and why did things go wrong,” he explained. “You know, certain people just hit that point where they need to take a break or they need to move on separate ways. So Bye Bye is a record that has that story line, from beginning to end.”
Nas married Kelis in 2005 and they welcomed a son, Knight, in 2009. Their divorce was finalised in 2010.
