Get out your chair, this is the season of Nasir!
The Queens legend rides the track, which uses J Dilla’s “Gobstopper” instrumental, with his signature metaphorically advanced flow. And the official version sparked the Twitter hashtag #SeasonofNasir.
“Young boy swag, I’m here today as well as the ‘90’s/but the past like my ass is behind me/ignite the Pyrex, try to bite this, get Nasty Nas-itis/arthritis when you try to write this,” he raps.
Dilla Dawg, of course, if from Detroit, which may be the reason Nas posted a picture of he and Madonna on Instagram with a quick mention of the Motor City.
“It's a NY & Detroit thing! @madonna,” he wrote.
Now we’re not ones to read into things, but the fact that the duo are posted up in the studio does lead one to believe that maybe Material Girl will put him on her forthcoming album. Or vice versa?
