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!

Nicki Minaj – “Sorry” feat. Nas

“Sorry” is a one-off that Nicki Minaj did with Nas that did not make the “Queen” LP. Making its way around the Interwebs fast. Snatched a copy off the superhighway (Flex’s tube) for you to review.

Nas – “NASIR” (Album Stream)

Of course, you heard about it… but have you actually heard the “Nasir” album. It’s 7 songs, so you might argue for the ‘EP’ stamp but they’re calling it an album (Nas and Kanye West) so let’s stick with that for now. Is it dope though? Listen and decide.
