Quizzed about the situation during an interview with M is for Music, the rapper suggested that other nations could improve the situation in the North African country.
Asked if the time is right for Westerrn intervention, Nas said: "Intelligently yes, I think they could intervene so that there could be peace, y'know, and some understanding."
He added: "I never saw Gaddafi as an enemy, like a deadly enemy that wanted to harm people for no reason. I kind of see him as someone who is misunderstood.
"I think a revolution in Libya is important and I just hate to see that the people are against him or he has to be against. I hate to see any violence between him and his people, I just don't like that."
Nas further revealed that he hopes to bring his Distant Relatives tour with Damian Marley to Africa for its finale.
