Recognize a real don when you see one. Nas was back in front of the camera earlier this week shooting the Aristotle-directed video for “The Don,” the first single off his 10thalbum Life Is Good, due this summer on Def Jam. The hip-hop vet was iced out in diamond chains with a scarf around his neck while shooting scenes in a ring of fire. He later relaxed poolside in a red blazer while dining with a female companion and hit the stage for a live performance.
“It’s heart wrenching, personal, and life, and all that good stuff,” Nas said of his new music.
He will be featured on the next episode of VH1’s “Behind the Music,” airing April 18.
