Nas couldn't have picked a better title for his latest LP. Life is Good received mostly favorable reviews. Better yet, it arrived the Billboard 200 chart at No. 1. It's rare for a rap album to enjoy critical praise and commercial success simultaneously. The feat is a testament to Nas' brilliance, as well as his devoted followership. Today, the 37-year-old MC held a conference call to thank members of the media for their support. He had some interesting things to say about the album and about his future plans. Here are the 10 best Nas quotes from the conference call.

I dont think that I can be a bigger fan of Nas’s music than I am now, but he has to be the worst rapper in interviews of all time. It’s strange how someone who writes so well has so little to say.

@smike55 nas himself said that he’s not good at being interviewed. he’s been hailed as being somewhat socially awkward, but hey, he’s still the G.O.A.T.

@smike55. I agree. I’ve always been a huge Nas fan also, but the way he comes off in interviews is just straight up uneducated. It’s a true shame, too because he is obviously one of the most creative and brilliant lyricists of all time.

In this case, though, I think it was a pretty pathetic interview. With how little info there is here, I’d have to guess that this “conference call” was about 1 minute and 25 seconds long.

Aside from being late, he handled himself very well at the Aspen Ideas Festival (http://www.aspenideas.org/session/hip-hop-deconstructed).
