The Wrong Parent Gets Credit For Nas’ Rapping Talent

Because Nas’ father is a jazz trumpeter, everyone automatically assumes that all of Nas’ musical talent comes from his paternal side. According to Nas’ younger brother, Jungle, we’ve got it all wrong. Yes, Olu Dara traveled all over the world playing his trumpet, but Nas’ mother Ann Jones helped cultivate Nas’ curiosity for the world and encouraged him to express himself through his art–be it drawing, poetry, or rhyming. Jungle made it perfectly clear in the documentary, “Anything that has to do with Nas is all because of our mother.”
