I’ll say it again like I did when this song first dropped — give me that Nas and Swizz Beatz album. For the video, the pair venture to a digital art museum where the visuals alternate between mystical waterfalls, somber blue-hued lamps and a striking all-white landscape.
These images fit perfectly with the dream-like quality of Nas’s lyrics as he recounts memories of his upbringing and surrounding community. It’s simultaneously a celebration and lamentation of a bygone area and yet another example of how untouchable Nas is when inspired.
One last time — get that completed Nas/Swizz Beatz album in our hands ASAP.
