The upcoming Netflix series The Get Down isn’t only produced by Nas — he looks to be blessing it with some new music, too.
The latest trailer for the series, which takes place in the Bronx during the late 1970s, is set to a musical backdrop of new rhymes from Esco: “Let’s take a trip back, back in the time / 1977, it was maximum crime,” he raps. “It seem like, nothin’ find me but trouble / But I see the light, it’s right there, at the end of the tunnel.”
This isn’t the only new music on the way from Nas. This Friday, The Land, a film that he produced, is set to hit theaters, and its soundtrack features “This Bitter Land,” from Nas and Erykah Badu. Then there’s “Nas Album Done,” a new track on DJ Khaled’s album Major Key, which also drops on Friday. And if the title is any indication, it means that there’s a lot more Nas in our near future.
The first six episodes of The Get Down, which stars Justice Smith, Dope’s Shameik Moore, and Jaden Smith, hit Netflix on August 12.
