Nas Learns About His Family’s History As Slaves
Nas appeared on the PBS show, Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates Jr last night. The episode, titled We Come From People features the Queens based rapper, Academy Award-nominated actress Angela Bassett and senior adviser to President Obama Valerie Jarret. Nas is shown a picture of the white slave owner who bought his great-great-great grandmother. As if that wasn’t traumatizing enough, the hurting rapper was then shown the receipt from the transaction, appalled that his relative was only sold for $830. Watch the clip above.
