Nas' heavily anticipated The Lost Tapes 2 is slated to arrive next Friday, and prior to the project's release, Nasty Nas drops off a taste of what's to come with the jazzy "Jarreau of Rap (Skatt Attack)," featuring late Grammy-winning singer Al Jarreau and reknowned trumpeter Keyon Harrold.
The 45-year-old rapper exudes a hasty flow over the horn-tinged instrumental mixed with Jarreau vocals, which is a refreshing change compared to the pacing we're typically accustomed to from the Queensbridge native.
"Everybody's not gonna get you but keep going/ I be cruising 40,000 feet like I'm a boat/ Doubting me they said I would have no longevity/ Instead I'm steadily rapping these fundamentals/ I assemble synthesis/ Cuss so much that I'm unadventurous/ I've been uninterested/ Living life is what matters/ Chill I'm the humble bragger," Nas rhymes.
Gear up for The Lost Tapes 2 dropping July 19. For now, listen to "Jarreau of Rap (Skatt Attack)" below.
