Award-winning New Orleans brass band Soul Rebels isn’t new to sharing the stage with big name hip-hop artists, and they turned heads again in April with Nas. The legendary emcee performed a number of songs with the eight-piece band, including “Hate Me Now.” The energy can be felt through the recording, but I can only . . .
What happens when Nas acapellas and Madlib instrumentals collide? Nasimoto. We have to thank Portsmouth, New Hampshire-based producer D. Begun for this project, which runs 21 tracks deep. Nas classics like “One Love,” “It Ain’t Hard To Tell,” “Life’s A Bitch,” and “We Will Survive” are among the records that are remixed. Stream Nasimoto below. Nasimoto (Nas & Quasimoto . . .
The Get Down Part II is out on NetFlix. It should come as no surprise that such a hip-hop centric show features music by a diverse array of artists including Nas, 6lack, Alessia Cara, Lil Yachty, and The Get Down Brothers (of course). Stream The Get Down Part II soundtrack below.
The second season of The Get Down is available on NetFlix, and with it comes a new Nas song called “Angel Dust.” Sampling a groovy Gil Scott Heron song of the same name, the new record finds Nas in his element as a storyteller once again as he gives us a snapshot of 1980’s drug . . .

“To be the Queen of rap, you can’t have a ghostwriter.” Man. I thought it was going to be a regular Saturday, and then I opened up my SoundCloud feed and saw that Remy had decided to take things up fifteen notches with “Shether.” Nicki Minaj fired some errant shots in Remy’s direction on Gucci . . .
Tinashe dropped the video for her single “Company,” a liberating song centered around female sexuality. In line with the feel and the lyrics of the song, Tinashe and her assembly of male and female background dancers can be seen performing non-stop, edgy choreography.

“Folarin Like” is a good look. I’m not sure if it was J. Cole calling Wale out that specifically got him back on his A game, but the man has been on a mission as of late. After dropping “Groundhog’s Day,” the DMV-hailing lyricist is back again with an impressive free verse over Nas‘s iconic . . .
To say that this project is “star-studded” might actually be an understatement.

It’s apparent that Nas‘s album is definitely on the way, even if you haven’t heard the song on Khaled’s album. The legendary emcee is being seen more than we’ve seen him in years.

“World startin’ to change, and you actin’ the same” Robin Thicke and Nas aren’t a likely collaboration on paper, but they join forces to create a salient listen on “Deep.” The newly released track has multiple layers, as Nas chooses to address topics such as police violence and his disdain for Donald Trump while Robin . . .
Nas‘s “One Love” will forever hold a special place in the hearts of many in its original form, but Telescope Thieves‘s new remix of the Illmatic standout track. The mood isn’t too far from that of the original, though this one has more of a modern feel. Stream “One Love” below.
