Getting Divorced

After four years of marriage—and just a couple months away from the birth of their first child—Nas and Kelis are splitting up.

The only reason I care about this enough to write about it: My affection for "Getting Married", the Nas track devoted to just that, with lyrics painting a detailed portrait of Nas and his lady's wedding day.

Condolences to the busted couple, and confidential to Nas: Take copious notes—hiphop needs its own Great Divorce Album.

schmader you're on the money man. hip hop totally needs its own great break up/divorce album, and nas is totally the artist to do it.

however, i have a suspicion that nas is probably more to blame for this split. dude's been insanely prolific releasewise since they married, whereas her career has slowed down. putting out album after album and headlining every rock the bells lineup ever probably isn't all that great for the home life.
