New Music: Nas -The Don


Once upon a time, those outside of the New York tri-state area saw Nas as just another NY rapper benefiting from east coast bias.  That was nearly 18 years ago, and the chipped toothed kid from Queensbridge has long since proved his lyrical worth in spades.  He’s now a respected elder statesman, and these days new music from him is seen as manna from heaven.  About an hour ago, he blessed fans with his latest work, a song titled “The Don.”  It’s the second single from his forthcoming tenth album Life is Good.
