Last month, Nas released a stunning, cinematic music video for “Wave Gods,” which is taken from the NYC legend’s new album, Magic.
In the visual, Nas and Rocky portray a variety of characters near and dear to their New York hearts, from the dice rolling residents of the high-rises and projects to the homeless citizens just looking for a bite to eat.
On the track, Nas pays homage to some of the city’s great stars, rapping, “Wake up out the bed, wrap my durag up/ Say a prayer, I’m thankin’ God that mom dukes had us/ Monotone style like Guru on some Preemo cuts/ Crewneck by McQueen, go nuts.”
Nas and Hit-Boy shared the surprise new nine-track album, Magic, on Christmas Eve, much to the joy of Nas fans everywhere.
