Nas thinks Stevie Wonder's lyrics are "beautiful".
The rapper constantly looks to legendary musicians for inspiration. Nas loves the lyrics to Stevie's These Three Words as they tell a story so simply.
"It just says 'I love you.' It's great. It's short and kind, like he says in the lyrics," he gushed in an interview with NME magazine.
"I think the lyrics of the song are beautiful and the way he sings it is amazing."
Nas has also revealed the DJ who inspired his award-winning career. The 38-year-old hip-hop star says a fellow music enthusiast encouraged him to be innovative with his work.
"DJ Hot Day was a guy from my block in my neighbourhood. He was a young entrepreneur and started his own record label," he explained.
"He recorded stuff and did stuff with R&B and hip-hop that was not being done before."
