Nas is Like.....

This morning, I woke up in a 90's hip-hop kind of mood, and of course Nas came to mind.  He has always been one of my favorite artists, and there's nothing like bumping Illmatic to start the week off on the right note.  Picture this:  Sunny LA,  Santa Monica Boulevard with the windows down, Coffee Bean in hand, Nas is Like...


 

Nasir Jones is a one-of-a-kind rapper who is set to deliver hot new tracks with an amazing sound this May.   But he's not doing it alone.   He is united with talented lyricist Damian Marley on their highly anticipated album Distant Relatives ( due out on May 18th, 2010). I had the chance to chat with Nas in Park City, Utah (home of Sundance Movie Festival) this year -- where we spent some QT backstage at Harry O's before his performance.    When I asked Nas about his new project with Marley earlier this year, his expression said it all --Peep our chat below:



Nas is extremely candid, especially when he raps: "[we're] real revolution rhymers, like two Obamas." which is a line from their newest internet release "As We Enter."   Nas and Damian Marley have come together to formulate an album that will force you to bob your head.   Just listen to the song "Land of Promise" and you will hear the distinct flavor of both musicians' backgrounds and influences, making their connection seem far from distant.   Peep their new video for "As We Enter."
