Nas has dropped another heat rock with “The Don.”
Nas continues his hot streak with this track which samples SuperCat and features the late Heavy D on coproduction.
The song has that definitive NY rap flavor. It’s almost as hard-knocking as “Made You Look” in terms of sheer unabashed brutishness.
This time, though, it’s SuperCat’s vocal that just sirens through the beat: Inna New York City…Inna New York City…
Apparently, the track is setting up Nas’ forthcoming, tentatively titled album Life Is Good.
Let’s hope that Nas drops that hotly anticipated LP this spring with more fat-free burners like this.
