New Music Album: Nas "Life Is Good"
Nas is finally ready to welcome all of his fans to the good life. It's been four years since he released his last solo album "Untitled", but on July 17, the Queensbridge rapper will drop "Life Is Good" his 10th album.
Since his classic 1994 debut "Illmatic", Nas has stood as one of rap's premier artists. Though he has grown from a local New York prospect to a global icon, He has managed to stay true to his hip-hop roots. On last summer's single "Nasty," the much-revered MC rode atop a break-beat-inspired rap production that was reminiscent of rap's golden era of the late 1980s. The album's second official release, "The Don," follows a similar path and even features production from the late Heavy D, as well as Salaam Remi and Da Internz.
Before his July 17 release, Nas will drop another single. The No I.D-produced "Daughters" will drop on May 1, while the video for "The Don" is scheduled to premiere April 27.
