For the past 20 years, Nasir Jones has been at the forefront of the hip-hop movement. He first burst onto the rap scene at 19 years old, penning what arguably, might be one of the most classic albums of our time, “Illmatic” where we had a chance to hear rap in a way that we were not accustomed to. His ability to paint pictures with words has been something that has become his calling card. After twenty years & nine albums later, NAS brings us his 10th album, “Life is Good” on world renown, Def Jam Records.
In this latest collection of music, we get a chance to see NAS in a light where we have never seen him before. Transparent. Which is quite evident from the album cover, in which NaS has his ex-wife’s wedding dress draped over his knee while holding a glass of champagne. NaS opens up to us about his recent divorce to R&B singer, Kelis in “Bye Baby” and what goes through his mind as the father of a teenage daughter in, “Daughters” executive produced by legendary producer & Chicago native, No I.D. We receive NaS’ most complete work in recent years. Stand out tracks on the album are “Accident Murderers” Featuring Rick Ross, “Cherry Wine” featuring Amy Winehouse & “Loco-Motive”
This is a phenomenal album with truthful content, wonderfully produced tracks & that is worth every penny.
