I’ve professed my love for Nas’ lyricism numerous times on twitter and facebook, the always fresh, never seems to age emcee has even had an entire post dedicated to him here on eclechick.
Hype is one way to describe my feelings when I purchased “Life Is Good” on iTunes as well as when I peeled back the plastic wrap on my cd (yes, I still purchase them). While going through the tracks on Mr. Jones’ album, the jazzy laid back melody of “Cherry Wine” tuned up with Amy Winehouse’s vocals grabbed my attention. The way Nas’ lyrics lays on the subdued uptempo beat mixed with hypnotizing lazy trumpets… Yeah, he had me again.
Check out the trailer below.
Let the anticipation for the full video to drop begin. Loving the old school vibe too.
