[Video] Nas Finds “Ugly” Beauty in NYC Streets with Latest ‘Magic’ Visuals

Nas and Hit Boy drop a new video from the "Magic" EP.

Since linking up with Hit Boy, Nas has been in rare form. The run continues with new visuals for “Ugly” off the Queensbridge legend’s surprise late 2021 Magic EP. The black and white video finds clips the rapper cruising through NYC streets interspersed with quick jumps to imagery from Nas’s vivid lines:

It’s ugly outside, it’s muggy, it’s money outside

105 Fahrenheit thunderous skies

The clouds shape a clown face above where you reside

Under his eye, a teardrop got the ugliest cry

They call my city Gotham City, opposite of pretty

Weatherman cannot predict bullets rainin’ from out the 50

It’s ugly outside, Big L would be here if it wasn’t

Hell will freeze over the day it doesn’t get ugly out

The video drop coincides with Mass Appeal’s release of the Magic merch store. The EP is available now on your favorite DSP.
