Nas has shared a new track for "The Get Down"
We've been waiting years for a new Nas album, and while there's still no news on when it may arrive, the legendary New York rapper has shared some new music today. The song comes from the upcoming Netflix Series The Get Down Part II, the follow-up to The Get Down, which chronicles the rise of hip hop in 1970s New York.
Nas, who writes raps for the characters in the series, delivers a fitting throwback on his new track. Over production reminiscent of the disco-infused sounds of early rap, Nas tells a story about the dangers of "Angel Dust," otherwise known as PCP. The song is played in the third episode of the new season.
Angels with dirty faces, angels with broken wings
The devil's dust, PCP, invaded blood streams
People lining up to get it, Fantastic knew how to flip it
Illegal substances constructing, but plus addicted
Trust it and respect it, almost got me arrested
All of the time I invested in school is now of question
