Nas has said that he will not speak ill of his ex-wife Kelis, claiming that he had "great hopes" for his marriage to the singer.

The veteran rapper, who underwent a public child support battle earlier this year, has insisted that he still believes in the union of marriage.

"Nope, nope, nope, I never, you know, I never was that kind of dude [to criticise his former partner], you know what I mean? It took me by surprise that today's game, though, no matter who you are, you can wind up out there. Your business be out there. That's just the way it is. I don't know what to do about that. You can't control it, it is what it is," he told Tim Westwood TV.

"I wish everybody the best, I wish the best for everybody. I ain't tripping, life is life. I love life. You live and learn. You just keep growing. Yeah. It's tough bruh, but yo, I dive in. I goes in. I still think marriage is a beautiful thing, it's a beautiful thing, you just gotta be strong to weather the ups and downs.

"I think it's a good thing to marry - I had great hopes. I thought we were going to go through it big, but two people are not, we gotta become one mind in a way. Two people think about life different, they see things different and then you just grow in different directions but I had a great time. Shout-out to my son Knight, he'll be one tomorrow."

Kelis recently revealed that she and Nas are now friends.
