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

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.”
