VIDEO: NAS AND DAMIAN MARLEY PERFORM IN LONDON

Nas and Damain Marley performed together at The Hammersmith Apollo on Tuesday night and from what I hear blew the audience away. The show was apparently that good!

But their racist attacks have gone way too far. Calling Michelle Obama ‘Barack’s baby mama’ – is that acceptable?
