Executive produced by Kanye West, the 7-song project features guest appearances from Puff Daddy, 070 Shake, The-Dream, and Kanye, who appears on the Slick Rick-sampled “Cops Shot The Kid.” Nas first premiered the album Thursday night in his hometown of Queens, NYC in front fellow artists & celebrities like Kanye, Kim Kardashian, Chris Rock, Pusha-T, 2 Chainz, Swizz Beatz, and La La Anthony to name a few, but now it’s finally here for the rest of the world to enjoy.
Nas Kicks Off “NASIR” With “Not For Radio” Feat. 070 Shake & Puff Daddy
Looking to highlight one of the records, here goes the intro track that kicks things off called “Not For Radio” featuring 070 Shake and vocals from Puff Daddy. The track is anthemic, yet gritty political statement that finds Nas addressing different racial and financial issues he’s had to face since getting in the game. There’s several references to slavery, religion, and politics, but in a lyrical assault of course.
Listen to the intro to Nas’ newly-released album called “Not For Radio” feat. 070 Shake & Puff Daddy.
