Rapper Nas opened up about his highly-publicized 2008 divorce from pop/R&B star Kelis. In an interview with RapFlix, the Queensbridge rhymer said that it was the first time he experienced what it was like to have tabloids intrude upon his personal life.
"Life is crazy. I [wound] up paying more money to baby mommas than what some of my rap brothers and sistren make," he said.
