After unveiling their new Nas Cover earlier today, XXL blessed us with a few exclusive excerpts from their upcoming interview, where Tyler, The Creator asks Nas some honest questions. This might not be what the music heads were looking for but with Nas being such an elusive interview subject, I think we’re in for some big surprises.

The following exchange comes after Tyler gives Nas props for his song “Me and You,” which was featured Street’s Disciple and dedicated to his daughter, Destiny.

Tyler: I love that beat . That song’s legit.

Nas: Aw, thanks, man. It’s crazy, because when she was young, she was a baby, I thought, Aw, man, I’m gonna quit this rap shit before she becomes old enough to even know what I’m doing, what I did for a living. I never thought that I’d be still doing it while she’s a teen, growing up. And I’m still in the game. It kind of fucks me up.

What do you do, like, in your spare time? Do you play Xbox or anything?

No, I’ve actually spent a lot of time being lonely as fuck, you know? It’s, like…you just do nothing.

Check out our exclusive excerpts in full after the jump…

Excerpt 1:

Tyler: Your daughter’s name is Destiny, right?

Nas: Yeah.

Tyler: How old is she now?

Nas: 17.

Tyler: That’s sick. I remember the song you dedicated to her off Street’s Disciple, the second disc.

Nas: Yeah.

Tyler: I love that beat. That song’s legit.

Nas: Aw, thanks, man. It’s crazy, because when she was young, she was a baby, I thought, Aw, man, I’m gonna quit this rap shit before she becomes old enough to even know what I’m doing, what I did for a living. I never thought that I’d be still doing it while she’s a teen, growing up. And I’m still in the game. It kind of fucks me up.

Tyler: It’s kind of weird, huh?

Nas: It’s weird as fuck sometimes. But then, other times, it’s, like, perfect. It’s, like, I’m glad it worked out this way. ’Cause then I would have to be telling her, “No, I really was a somebody in rap. Like, you got to believe me!”

Tyler: She’d be like, “What the fuck you talking about, nigga? I’m about to go to the mall.”

Nas: Exactly, exactly, dude. That shit is amazing.

Excerpt 1:

Do you like cheese?

I love cheese.

Cheddar or Swiss?

Swiss. Cheddar for the most of my life. Today, it’s Swiss.

Sick. That’s cool. I love fuckin’ cheddar. That’s my shit.

Why? Why did you ask?

I don’t know. I just want to know. I don’t know. What do you do, like, in your spare time? Do you play Xbox or anything?

No, I’ve actually spent a lot of time being lonely as fuck, you know? It’s, like…you just do nothing.
