Video: Nas, "Nasty"

The primary road block for Nas in 2011 is not attempting to emulate the impossible heights he reached on Illmatic, nor is it really getting a #1 radio single, which seems a bit unlikely right now. Nas has always been a technically great rapper, it's just a matter of fitting that skill into something that people will care about right now. In our dream world, "Nasty" is exactly that song. It's mostly just Nas going off over a minimal beat while walking through the Queensbridge projects. He's not complaining, he's not making ill-advised sex raps, he's not trying to sound young, he's just rapping. That's all we ever really want from him.
