Nas Responds to Abuse Allegations in to Kelis.

Nas has written an open letter to Kelis, in which he addresses abuse allegations the singer made against him in April.

“Today i got a call from essence about my ex wife doing another sad fictitious story,” he wrote in part one of his statement, which was shared on Instagram. “This is what your life has come to sis? Exploiting some people’s Real struggle and pain…just to get at me….to get attention? Fame? Another fight against men? We are a human family and we should be better examples for our son.”

Later, he alleged that Kelis physically attacked him in front of their son earlier this year.

We won’t mention names, but one of CASSIUS’ editors once saw DeRay wearing his blue vest on one of the hottest days of NYC summer and—needless to say—they were quite perplexed.

“I still wear it because it reminds me that all of the things that we went through were real,” he recently shared on BuzzFeed’s AM2DM. “I’ve had this vest on when I was tear-gassed, when I was dragged out of the police department by my ankles, when I was shot at with bullets … This is my grounding piece. I have been in so many places that I could forget about what happened, and I never want to forget how fragile freedom is and was in those moments.”
