Divine Carama releases a very special Nas dedicated free LP called “It Was Rewritten”. Artists such as Thee Tom Hardy, Vito Banga of Nappy Roots, 88 Key’s signed Nemo Achida, legendary battle MC Canibus, & underground hip hop group CunningLynguists all helped out on the project. The project was also produced by 2 Mello.
The first video off of the project, directed by 2 Mello, is for his song “Suspect”. In the song he talks about how the school system is unjust, how many historical aspects are overlooked and how corrupt and back-thinking our country truly is. Very honest video.
According to Carama:
We really wanted to go for an early-mid 90′s feels on this one. The mixtape was inspired by a mid 90′s LP so we felt it was only right to have that essence.. Also, so much of just one type of theme is going on right now in hip hop.. Everything is big, expensive, negative, degrading, numb…… We just wanted to throw something out there that the opposite to a lot that’s going on right now. Do our part in balancing things out.

Nas preview for new video.
Nas took to the stage in Miami to celebrate the release of his latest album ‘Life is Good’. Not to be confused with other album release parties, Nas actually performs some of his tracks off his new album as well as some classics such as ‘Hate Me Now’. He also talks about his divorce from Kelis, which must have been hard with all of the strippers doin tricks 50 ft up in the air…looked like a sick night. Enjoy!
According to Nas, in an interview with Vibe, he said he wanted to get Eminem and Jay-Z on his remix to Daughters. I thought the original was great as it is and should just be left alone, but hey, if you can get three legends on one track…what the hell right. However, in what seemed like a match made in heaven since all three have young daughters, the dream collaboration didn’t quite come together.
Nas drops another record from his upcoming album Life Is Good. The song features production from Swizz Beatz and singer Miguel. Check it out below.
One leak wasn’t enough for Nas today. He went ahead and dropped another single off of his album Life Is Good. Well, I guess it must be. Feel like I heard the whole album already…but I’m sure Nas left us some goodies on the album we didn’t hear yet. Listen below.
Nas gave fans a preview of one of his new tracks off his upcoming LP Life Is Good. The song is called A Queens Story and Nas talks about all of his musical influences and life growin up in Queensbridge. The song is also a sample of Marvin Gaye’s I Want You. Check it out after the jump.
