Beautiful actress Nia Long is an admirable woman and everyone knows it. Her name is one that is mentioned when talking about sought after and accomplished stars in the industry. She recently sat down with Larry King in an interview and was asked why she is a common name drop in so many hip-hop songs.
She explained that when her career began to soar, many black actors and actresses were beginning to land major roles in movies. Rappers often saw her as a symbol of success – and it didn’t hurt that she was a brown skin beauty.
The most recent rapper to name drop Long was J. Cole in his 2014 Forest Hills Drive song “No Role Modelz.” He raps: “My only regret was too young for Lisa Bonet / My only regret was too young for Nia Long”
With Long’s status, you would think that it wouldn’t phase her. However, the 45-year-old Love Jones actress shows she has a flirty side. “He’s really not too young. He just didn’t know it.” Nice!
J.Cole, who was reportedly the highest earning rapper in 2015, most likely won’t be responding back to her comment because he is happily married these days! In fact, he just admitted to being married last year. But it would be interesting to know what he thinks.
