On PBS, Rapper Nas is shown a receipt for the sale of his ancestors | I Love Black People

According to the Atlanta BlackStar, Nas revealed the information on the Television Critics Association panel. Regarding the finding, Nas stated, “First I was enraged when I looked at the bill of sale. I was like, that guy owned property owes me some cash. My people made him really wealthy, so maybe I should find his family and talk.” Nas also says that he did not expect to find out much about his family’s history. He states, “I thought I would never know anything about my family past my grandparents, and I was willing to just accept that because I had no way of finding out. So when I saw the bill of sale, I had to stop and deal with that for a moment. This is a sale of a human being. This was business here in this country.”
