After my promotions assistant, Emily, and myself picked up Nas, we got to spend some time with him hanging out! We had a really great time helping him make his last video about Nebraska! Come back anytime, Nas!

THERE IS NOTHING IN MIDDLE AMERICA!

The reason I wanted to go to Middle America is simple: I lived in Boston and New York for 6 years. Going from one liberal bubble to another. Harvard then to East Village in Manhattan. It almost felt like I lived in half the United States only. The other half I just saw on the news. Then all of a sudden, Trump got elected and only two of my 2,700 friends publicly voted for him. Something was off with the way I was making friends. So my personal goal, for almost a year now, has been to visit the other half of the United States. And what better time than while I'm doing Nas Daily? One recurring theme I noticed was that people felt "forgotten". You have the East Coast and the West Coast and people just fly over the middle part. It is, by all accounts, a shitty feeling. So my hope from these videos has been to show that: No, it's not just corn. There are real things you can do there. No, you're not smarter than a guy who didn't go to college. You're more educated, but not smarter. And no, it's not true that every Trump voter hates Muslims. I am a Muslim. I made those videos. In fact, I found myself agreeing with most people on the basic issues and I'm a die hard liberal. Life isn't just black or white. It's gray. I wanted my videos to highlight the gray. The past 5 days felt like 5 years. Maybe because I drove for 20 hours. But also because I feel like I now officially have friends in Nebraska :) The amount of messages I got from people here has been tremendous and I'm sad I couldn't get to meet everyone. But those that I did get to hang out with, thank you. I hope you enjoyed watching as much as I enjoyed making! LIKE Nas Daily on Facebook! @NasDaily on Instagram!
