So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I can’t count how many times I’ve said “I’m going to keep this post short today” and never did it. However, I shall be a man of my word today. The fact of the matter is, this new Nas song is fuego, man! All I can say is, if this song is an indicator of what his Hit-Boy-produced album will sound like, then I’m absolutely ready for it, fam.
Ok, for those who missed it, Nas is dropping an album called King’s Disease on August 21st. Now, the album is set to be produced by super producer Hit-Boy. In any case, Nas’ beat selection has always been his Achilles heel. Frankly, all I’ve ever wanted was for a producer to take over the reins from him. I mean, think about it, bruh. Illmatic was overseen by Large Professor and It Was Written was overseen by Trackmasters. It’s not a coincidence that they’re both classics, brethren. He’s also made amazing records when Rick Ross was picking the beats. Side note, I still want Ross to executive produce a Nas album. Son, the music would be fucking INCREDIBLE, man!
In any case, this new “Ultra Black” son is tough, fam. The beat is the right tempo, the piano is dope and the bars are sharp. Shit, he even got Doja Cat the fuck up outta here, which is always welcomed. With all of that being said, everyone can listen to the track below. At the end of the day, I can’t wait for next week, bruh. That is all. LC out.
