New Music: Nas – ‘Life Is Good’ [Album Snippets]

Life Is Good

Nas returns to his glory days on his 10th album Life Is Good. Due July 17, the 18-track deluxe edition features appearances from Mary J. Blige, Rick Ross, Large Professor, Miguel, Anthony Hamilton, and the late Amy Winehouse, with production by Salaam Remi, No I.D., Swizz Beatz, Rodney Jerkins, Da Internz, Noah “40” Shebib, and more.

“My mindset was to pull out a side of me that people haven’t heard in a while and give ‘em that feeling that they haven’t felt in a while—a feeling that I love,” Nas told Rap-Up.com. “And some of that feeling is ’90s-esque, some of that feeling is 2015. It’s just a feeling that I feel to be a timeless sound.”

Sample 30-second snippets from the album below.

    When it comes to putting out good quality music, Nas never fails to amaze me at all. Nas is still the best lyricist, I am excited to hear the final product of Nas’ Life Is Good Album. Nas’ Life Is Good Album is going to be one of the best hip hop albums of the year, and arguably the best hip hop album of the year.

    Nas is the greatest rapper of all time! I really cannot wait till this drops! Lyrically, you gotta listen to a Nas track atleast 4 times in order to fully get everything he’s talking about he’s so deep

    Gat damn, Nas. He never makes me take a second guess about hailing him as King. This is what hip hop was based on. Street Stories….not self glorifying, drug encrusted, condo music.

    This is the best hip hop ulbim since biggie died period. No one can touch it lyirically and musically. No jz no ross no body. This is classic, bestr Nas ulbum eva. I’m form south africa and I’ll listern to all kinds of hip hop, old school to common to jd to slum to 9th wonda to nrew skul lil wayme to 2chainz. He deserves to be no1 mc of the year, let’s see if mtv bullshit will put ross no1 again this year. Celebrate hip hop is back. Here to STAY crazy shit
