President Obama Makes A 'Nas'-ty Error With Rap Legend's Name

Obama botches Nas's name--and maybe his street cred
It appears Vice President Joe "put ya'll back in chains" Biden isn't the only one on the Democratic presidential ticket prone to gaffes.
During a morning radio interview with KOB FM in New Mexico, Obama was asked, among other things, what is his favorite workout song. After listing his old-school preferences, he moved on to the new school, "Jay-Z, Beyonce, you know, Nas. You name it, I've got it." Except he didn't have the correct pronunciation of Nas's name. It's more like "nahz", Mr. President, not "nass." If you can't wait to hear the president screw up the Illmatic's stage name, jump to 3:26. Now, what might be more embarrassing, is letting the whole world know your favorite "gonna make you sweat tune" is Beyonce's "Crazy in Love."
