Nas and Jack White connected in the studio in the latest clip from recent PBS miniseries, The American Epic Sessions. The show looks at the history of American music and is co-produced by White with Robert Redford acting as narrator.
In the clip above, Nas performs his Illmatic track backed by White on piano. The performance was recorded live and subsequently pressed on to vinyl straight after. Nas and White also covered the 1920s blues standard “On the Road Again" for the show, a clip of which appeared in a trailer for the show.
All three parts of The American Epic Sessions are available to watch in full via the PBS website.
