Diddy Partners With “High-End” DeLeon Tequila
Hip Hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs continues to make huge moves outside of the music…
Nas season is here. During his visit to Angie Martinez last month, the hip-hop icon promised that new music was coming soon, and he finally gave us a taste of it. Nas joined Run the Jewels’ Killer Mike and El-P on stage during a release event for Run the Jewels 2 at Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn on Wednesday.
Nas, who recently wrapped his “Time Is Illmatic” tour, congratulated the duo on their new album before playing a snippet of his new single “The Season.” Rhyming over J Dilla’s “Gobstopper” beat, Nas pays homage to the late producer and reflects on being a hip-hop king unable to enjoy the fruits of his labor.
“Dilla lives on / It’s like he wrote it with me / The soulful sample compliments my rhymes so well,” he raps.
Nas denies that Jay Electronica or Jay Z inspire his rhymes (“He vacationin’”), and credits his brother Jungle as his source of inspiration.
