nas “loco-motive” f/ large professor

another hot single from what’s shaping up to be a great album.  i really had to post it though on the strength of the second verse (below), which embodies a lot of what i love about hip hop (bravado, honesty, wittiness, emotion, skill, etc.).  make sure you see why nas’s life is so good on july 17th:

At seventeen I made seventeen thousand livin’ in public housin’
Integrity intact, reppin’ hard
They askin’ how he disappear and reappear back on top
Sayin’, “Nas must have naked pictures of God or somethin'”
To keep winnin’ is my way like Francis
As long as I’m breathin’, I’ll take chances
A soldier comin’ home, twenty years old with no legs
Sayin’ there’s no sense to cry and complain, just go ‘head
So much to write and say, yo I don’t know where to start
So I’ll begin with the basics and flow from the heart
I know you think my life is good cause my diamond piece
But my life been good since I started finding peace
I shouldn’t even be smilin’, I should be angry and depressed
I been rich longer than I been broke, I confess
I started out broke, got rich, lost paper then made it back
Like Trump bein’ up down up, play with cash
