Apparently Nas Is Beefing With Fox News (And Possibly NBC and CBS)

nas_6-29.jpgJossip picks up on one of the new tracks off Nas‘ upcoming CD, now being called “Untitled” but previously slated to…have a different name, which calls out Fox News and the media as a whole.

The song’s (titled “Sly Fox”) chorus goes, “Watch what you watching, Fox keeps feeding us toxins, stop sleeping, start thinking outside the box, and unplug from the matrix doctrine.”

Another lyric: “Fox has a bushy tail. And Bush tells lies and foxtrots, so I don’t know what’s real.”

He’s previously challenged Bill O’Reilly to a debate, and calls out the FNC anchor by name in the song: “The Fear Factor got you all riled up. O’Reilly, oh really.”

Nas’ media criticism is not solely aimed at Fox News — he seems to call out NBC (“the network for child predators, setting them up”) and CBS (“Watch CBS and see BS”).

• Swipes at Fox News are sweeping the charts — Coldplay’s got one in their new album as well.
