Nas Releases Video for The Don

In anticipation for the release of his 9th studio album Life is Good, Nas has just dropped the video for latest single The Don.

Arguably hip hop’s greatest and most influential figure, the NY lyricist goes HAM over the infectious vocal loop and shattering bass, effortlessly showcasing his penchant for multi-syllabic rhymes laced with double entendres.

In between shout-outs to Red Alert and Mr Magic’s Rap Attack, Nasir manages to touch on everything from the Qur’an to 80’s crack-cocaine gang the Supreme Team.

The clip itself showcases the self proclaimed Don rubbing shoulders with music moguls, dining with models and reading in the back of his white Rolls Royce, whilst giving nods back to his local ‘hood, Queens.

Life is Good drop July 17th. In the meantime, you can check out the other confirmed tracks for the record, Nasty and Daughters.
