Behind the Video: Nas – ‘Nasty’

Nas caused a scene when he returned to his old stomping grounds of Queens, New York, to shoot a video for “Nasty,” the first single off his upcoming album Life Is Good. The local residents came out in droves to catch a glimpse of the hometown hero. He teamed up with director Jason Goldwatch to shoot scenes on the block, in the Queensbridge projects where he grew up, and in the back of a Rolls-Royce. “A lot of people can’t come back here, but that’s one that can,” said his childhood friend Snacks.
