Life does appear to be all good on surface, and Nasir Jones celebrates new beginnings within the art-form of things, as the Queensbridge veteran rapper, who is draped with his ex-wife Kelis’ [green] wedding dress over his lap looks off into the distance…pondering what’s next for his immediate future. And that is — his upcoming anticipated album Life Is Good, for which has spawned singles “The Don” and “Daughters” — and will hit racks on July 17th. Toast to the good life by pre-ordering it here. Nas & L-Boogie do SummerJam below.
Along with Chrisqo hugging up on Onika in the visual, and vice-versa, Nasir also stands in as a love interest…in fact, playing kissy face with the Young Money rap-tress in the Benny Boom-directed clip.
We were already blessed with a selection of on-set flicks, now here’s a behind the scenes visual for the making of Nas’ “Daughters” video, which was directed by Chris Robinson, and featuring a cameo from his very own daughter, Destiny.
With a visual for “The Don” making its’ rounds, Nasir Jones is prepping to move on with a video to his next Life Is Good single, “Daughters.” Here’s a few Instagram photos snapped from the set, which was directed by Chris Robinson, styled once again by June Ambrose, and featuring Nas’ daughter Destiny Jones. More after the jump.
This one is personally my favorite episode of the season…
“Behind The Music: Nas” tells the story of one of hip hop’s most daring and prolific icons. Raised in the gritty Queensbridge projects of New York City, Nas narrowly escaped his violent surroundings. He later channeled his experiences into a lyrical style that would revolutionize hip hop. A musical legend by the age of 20, Nas’ passion for music has carried him through a tumultuous career. Despite very public distractions including multiple feuds with hip hop’s biggest names, political controversy, a highly publicized divorce with R&B star Kelis, as well as the devastating loss of his mother, Nas’ seven consecutive platinum albums have cemented him as one of the greatest hip hop artists of all time. The special features candid interviews with Nas, members of his family, friends and hip hop luminaries including Russell Simmons, Q-Tip and Common. “Behind the Music: Nas” is the truly unfiltered story of Nasir Jones as it’s never been told before.
