Nas has slammed Reverend Jesse Jackson after the US Civil Rights activist strongly criticised Barack Obama on live television.
During a break from a Fox News show, Jackson sensationally accused the Presidential hopeful of “talking down to black people” and whispered that he would like to “cut his nuts off.”
A furious Nas has now strongly condemned Rev. Jackson and has given his full backing to Obama. He blasted to MTV: "I think Jesse Jackson, he's the biggest player hater.
"His time is up. All you old niggas, time is up. We heard your voice, we saw your marching, we heard your sermons. We don't wanna hear that shit no more. It's a new day. It's a new voice. I'm here now. We don't need Jesse; I'm here. I got this.
“We got Barack, we got David Banners and Young Jeezys. We're the voice now. It's no more Jesse. Sorry. Goodbye. You ain't helping nobody in the 'hood. That's the bottom line. Goodbye, Jesse. Bye!"
Rev. Jesse Jackson has since been forced to apologise to Obama, which the presidential hopeful has accepted.
