Nas cancelled a recent Hip-Hop Is Dead tour date in San Diego, CA amidst claims that he and wife Kelis encountered racist club employees, who treated them like terrorists.
â€œWe came to the club, all excited. Couldnâ€™t wait to get here. [The tour venues] have been sold out every night. We go to the venue and they ainâ€™t let me in. I was outside with my wife and they treated us like terrorists,â€ Nas explains. â€œIt was a little racist and we just donâ€™t tolerate that. I just want everybody to know, donâ€™t tolerate any form of racism. â€œThere is no other side of the story. We had a whole bunch of security guys rush outside to me and my wife like we were terrorists. Itâ€™s not like I came with 50 guys or nothing. It was just me, my wife, my DJ and my staff for the Hip-Hop Is Dead tour and they came at us like we was Osama Bin Laden or somebody.â€ (Source)
