That Nas Collaboration? Rocko Says It ‘Just Kinda Happened’

The two collaborated recently on 'Hustle.'

When Rocko dropped his Poet mixtape two weeks ago, he did so both to honor the legendary Maya Angelou, who passed away just days before the tape dropped, and to acknowledge rap as a form of poetry. It was a perfect move, then to get the self-proclaimed “thug poet” Nas on the project.

“That song with Nas, man, it just kinda happened,” Rocko told MTV News recently, speaking on their collaboration, “Hustle.” “I met him; we hit it off well. We just stayed in touch, and he like, ’Man, send me a song.’ So I sent him the song, and he was like, ’Man, this crazy.’ He sent it right back.”
