After two decades, Nas is still at the top of his game!

The hip hop legend is celebrating the 20th anniversary of his iconic debut album, Illmatic and told HipHollywood, “I think about the way the game was back then and I didn’t know I would even be still around this long…I didn’t want to be around this long in the game to tell you the truth.”

And even though he didn’t want to be here, he can now look back on the 20+ years in the rap game and give a little advice to the new comers. “Anybody out there that’s working on their first album, who’s only made one album right now, just think about 20 years from now and it’s gonna be a great feeling.”

HipHollywood caught up with the “One Mic” MC as he was being honored at the 2nd annual Vibe Impact Awards. J. Cole, Swizz Beatz, Busta Rhymes and more came out to show their support for Nasty Nas.

And while everyone came out to celebrate Nasir, he took a moment to give props to another New York rapper, J. Cole.

Exclusive: Diddy Wants To See More Of This On Fox’s ‘The Four’

Fox’s The Four: Battle For Stardom will never have a loser, at least according to panelist and show creator, Diddy.

Every week, singers around the country will fight for stardom by doing all they can to stay in the top four of the singing competition show. But while some might get sent home, Diddy tells HipHollywood that there are “no losers in this situation.”

He explained while at last week’s taping, “the people that lose actually win because people don’t agree with what goes on, so now they have a platform.”

The music is not only out of this world, but it’s also just straight up fun. Host Fergie unveiled to HH, “Your heart beats racing, but we also can really laugh at ourselves and have a good time and be idiots.”

She added, “There’s a good amount of we care care that much to be intense and serious and be invested and want to stand behind these artists; but also at the same time we all like to have a good time.”

Panelist DJ Khaled is all about the jovial antics and banter, but he doesn’t want “nobody taking my kindness for weakness.” He told us, “I’m going to give you the keys and let you know how I feel.”

The show is on it’s way to becoming a world renowned phenomenon. Diddy, however, would like to see one thing. “More rappers,” he told HipHollywood. “Rapers don’t have a relationship with shows like this so there’s not that database. So we are doing something original.”

The Four airs on Thursday night’s at 8pm on Fox.
