Nas has been quiet with his own musical output for a hot minute, but some new material has now hit the net. Listen to his collaboration with Erykah Badu, “This Bitter Land”, above now.
The powerful track is cinematic and grand, as the NY legend pains a picture of poverty-stricken city life in his lyrics. Erykah takes on hook duties, with her unmistakable vocals sounding right at home over the string section of the instrumental.
“This Bitter Land” is taken from forthcoming movie The Land, which Nas is executive producing.
