DJ Shadow – “Drone Warfare” feat. Nas x Pharoahe Monch

As dope as both these emcees are, they have never collaborated before now. But now Queens finally meets Queensbridge. Not gonna expend energy trying to figure out why it took so long to get them together on a track like this… gonna save that for the head-nodding and face-scrunching. Dope!

Plus the beats and scratches by DJ Shadow. Yoooooooo!

DJ Shadow has unveiled a new song from his ambitious double album – Our Pathetic Age – now available via Mass Appeal. Our Pathetic Age is the result of an intensely creative period that found the Hip-Hop and electronic innovator delving further into original composition and experimentation “Drone Warfare” features Queens-native Pharoahe Monch and New York Legend, Nas.

Dave East – “Godfather 4” feat. Nas (Prod. By DJ Green Lantern)

Who’s ready for an East Coast OVERLOAD? Rhetorical question. Y’all gone get this Nas and Dave work! Dope that Nas gave the respect shout to Dave right in the lyrics. And Dave gave the love right back to ‘Big Bro’… plus this soulful, aired out beat.

Good head nod Hip-Hop!

Nas – “War Against Love” (Video)

“The Lost Tapes 2” will grow on you, if you let it. We linked you already, but we got you here again. Check for Nas… always!

Nas’s newest video, “War Against Love,” from his critically-acclaimed album, The Lost Tapes 2, fearlessly spotlights the historic and current discourses we face. With peaceful displays of humankind’s achievements and nature’s beauty paired with difficult scenes of man-made destruction, the message is clear; it is our duty to learn from humanity’s fraught history and move forward in the name of love.

Drink Champs: Nas (Video)

The G.O.D.M.C. Nasir sits for the chit-chat while letting the glasses go clink-clack with the Drink Champs. Gotta talk up the “Lost Tapes 2” project he’s pushing, but there’s sooooo much more in here!

N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN sit down with the legendary Nas for an iconic episode as they discuss the release of his new album, putting Queens back on the map, and the one person who said no to being a feature on a song.

Nas – “Queensbridge Politics” (Prod. By Pete Rock)

Queensbridge just ain’t any other hood…

Nas lets us know that it’s Queensbridge over everybody else! Spitting some history, shouting out his homies (including the dearly departed), this is that good grade of N-A-S that you wanted to blow some C-B-D to. Ha!

This Pete Rock-produced jawn is off “The Lost Tapes 2” album (out now). Did you know Nas had Al Jarreau on there as one of the features?

Nas Speaks On Wu-Tang Clan From The ‘Hidden Chambers’ (Video)

‘Hidden Chambers’ is a series of bonus scenes from the Mass Appeal x Showtime four-part Wu-Tang Clan docu-series, “Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men.” Nas reflects on the brethren he came to know back in the day.

Project kids. We felt it, we smelled it off each other.

Nas – “Life’s a Bitch” feat. AZ (Cookin Soul Remix) [Video]

So I saw this video on YouTube and thought the title was ‘familiar’… I know we had posted something from Cookin Soul. Turns out it was several ‘somethings’ from several years back. This visual is a revival of sorts then. A presentation off that “Soulmatic” dropped years ago (relinked below since the links we had are now broken, because Internet).

Leslie “Big Lez” Segar Speaks On Nas’ & “Illmatic” (Video)

I listen to music, obviously, from my hips rather than my ears, because I’m a dancer…

And what lovely hips they are, Leslie. Make me wanna sing to them. Have mercy!

Give me a late pass… mainly because Big Lez is so gaaadaaamn SEXY! Plus she is speaking on Nas’ “Illmatic” as one of her ‘Best Albums’ ever. So appropriate that this happened to be Episode 25 in a series since this is the 25th year since the release of “Illmatic.”

Leslie #BigLez Segar picks #Nas’ #Illmatic for her episode of #BestAlbums. The #Queens #NewYork #dancer & #radiohost explains why she feels a #deep #connection to the #album. She also talks about the power of #NYStateOfMind #LifesABitch & #TheWorldIsYours, as well as the production work of #DJPremier #PeteRock & #QTip.
– Unique Access Ent.

Great interview! And I remember the ‘wooooow’ feeling I got when I learned that that was Nas’ dad playing him out on “Life’s A B!tch.” Beautiful song!

Nas x Divine x Naezy x Ranveer Singh – “NY Se Mumbai”

‘NY To Mumbai’Nasir taking it to India, balling out with some of Bollywood’s best bar bringers. Nas jumps off the track, then jumps off the lyrical ride and lets the other emcees drive home. Off the “Gully Boy” soundtrack. Could be another “Slumdog Millionaire” by the time all is said and done, son.

Nas – “Adam And Eve” (Video)

Interesting that we had Nas doing his single “Adam And Eve” live but not a music video until now. But we got it now; keeping the push for “NASIR”… the album alive.

The Black Eyed Peas – “Back 2 HIPHOP” feat. Nas (Video)

Seems right that Nas becomes iconic for the ‘standard’ of the realness, the best… of the Golden Era of Hip-Hop. Like the connection made in that previously unreleased Beastie Boys collab they had with him (here). Now, The Black Eyed Peas are tapping that vein.

This is the visual for the lead single for “Masters Of The Sun” (Vol. 1) by The Black Eyed Peas

Nas – “Nasir: The Film” (Video)

Ohhhh. This presented like a documentary short about Nas (e.g. Nasir). And well, it is a short film – more so than a movie – starring Nas. It’s actually a survey of songs from “Nasir” brought to life via video in this unique way. Dope!

Swizz Beatz – “Echo” feat. Nas

Nas is one of the best. Can we toast to that? Swizz is asking. I’m answering: Yes! After much ado on the track by Swizzy, herrre’s Nassir with another lyrical blessing. Off Swizz’s LP “Poison” (out now).

Nas – “Adam And Eve” (Live Performance) [Video]

Hope you caught Nas doing his single “Adam And Eve” on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert the other night. Either way, you are in luck; because here it is again! Great look for “NASIR”… the album and the artist.
