Here goes Nas' new video for Hero with Keri Hilson. This song goes HARD!!!
Meanwhile, Untitled is going to be on repeat for a while! The album is Nas just doing him really; addressing issues he feels need to be addressed while dropping some beautiful bars in the process, so I'm gonna say nothing new here, but that doesn't make it any less of the fantastic album that it is.
On America he addresses the racial disparity which goes on in day-to-day America with a not-so-veiled reference to the Sean Bell decision. Sly Fox is Nas' finest hour on this album IMO; he addresses the ways in which the media try to manipulate the public while specifially going at Bill O'Reilly and Fox News. CBS also gets a shot in this 4:23 minute long lyrical annihilation of the media; '...when I watch CBS, I see B.S'. Nas tells us, 'watch what you're watching'.
Sidebar: Rappers are loving Nigeria these days...LOL...first Weezy and now Nas...see Y'all My N*ggas.
On We're Not Alone, we're told to rasie our children right, and rightly so, as 'from the seed comes the fruit'. He also goes on to explain the effect of the nigger's past struggles on his actions today. '...Now we pop to prove anything's possible/ my pimp strut was invented when they whipped us'
Bottomline: BUY THE ALBUM!!! It will be well worth your money! Out July 15th. Straight dOpeNeSS
