LOS ANGELES, CA Thursday Jul.19.2007 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- Rapper 50 Cent says books are to blame for a dip in NaS' career.

The star explains why in the new issue of XXL. He says, "You have people that are extremely book smart that lack common sense so they don't know what's going to affect their audience. They have more information than me based on reading. For instance, Nas is a really smart guy. He reads books constantly. We were around him on the Nastradamus tour. He was almost weirder than me 'cause we would go to breakfast and he'd be there reading a book. Conceptually, I think that's what made him drift away from what his initial audience enjoys from him and why he's not hot right now."
