The first single from Nas’ upcoming album Life is Good, “Nasty,” hit the internet a few months back, and yesterday the second single was released. “The Don” is a shade less aggressive than the first track, but features a pretty heavy beat co-produced by Salaam Remi and the late Heavy D, and a great vocal sample that gives the track an international flavour. The short bridge that hits around the 2:30 mark does a great job of momentarily conjuring the feel of Nas’ classic Illmatic. Nas hits the track pretty hard, and if the rest of the album is as good as the first two tracks, Life is Good is an album to be eagerly anticipated. Check it out below.
