A few weeks ago, Nas shared the artwork from upcoming Life Is Good album. In the photo (shared below), he sits on a couch looking a bit somber and thoughtful, holding the wedding gown of his ex-wife, Kelis. According to Nas, Kelis left the wedding dress when their marriage ended and she moved out.
Fast forward to the present day and Kelis responded to Nas’ symbolic “Life is Good” cover:
“My feelings about it are not really relevant, but you know at the end of the day Nas is an artist. And for whatever it’s worth he’s one of the greatest, and especially for what it is he does. So for me, I feel like especially for someone in hip-hop to kind of be genuine and honest, whatever the honesty is about, I think it’s awesome. So my feelings about it aren’t really necessarily valid, it’s just the fact that as an artist I can respect that he wears his feelings on his sleeve.”
