“So you ain’t let Nas down/ it’s just part of the game/ becoming a Rap King” J. Cole was heavily affected by Nas’ criticism on “Work Out.” It spawned into one of the best songs on his sophomore album, Born Sinner, with “Let Nas Down.” A sort of passing of the torch moment comes from Mr. Jones himself as he remixes the song to sort of explain his self and drop more knowledge on Cole and the world. Now the hype for an album has sparked. J. Cole Ft. Nas – Let Nas Down (Remix) Previously: Review: J. Cole – Born Sinner Follow… continue reading
Tomorrow, the final two will be revealed. On RapFix, Sway and company revealed the fourth and third slots with a surprising Nas and a predictable Rick Ross respectively. After giving us an incredible album with Life Is Good, Nas’ position can’t be debated. Rick Ross (watch after the jump) might be a little too high on the list if you talk about just his solo material but combining all the MMG moves adds up a bit. So, 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar for the two final spots? Previously: #10 | #9 | #8 | #7 | #6 | #5 Follow @SermonsDomain

In a little less than two weeks, Meek Mill will release his debut album. Out of everything on the track listing, “Maybach Curtains” was one of the more anticipated tracks. John Legend was perfect to sing the hook that fits into Meek’s entire rise in the game. Ross’ verse isn’t bad either. Shouts to Rap Genius.

Nas portrays a bartender in “Cherry Wine,” fascinated by this beauty in a black dress. Such a magnificent song. The clips of Amy Winehouse fit very well. Life Is Good is out now. Directed by Jay Martin. Previously: Video: Nas – Bye Baby Follow @SermonsDomain
Just over a month after giving us the visuals for “Daughters,” Nas gives us another video off one of the best albums of the year, Life Is Good. The credits give the nod to Aristotle for the “visualization” of this song and he nailed it. You won’t catch Nas staring down the camera, but rather moving images that perfectly flow with the track to completely the story that is “Bye Baby”.
