Video: Nas – A Queens Story

In Hip Hop by Katie Allen

From his latest album ‘Life Is Good’ and produced by Salaam Remi who samples ‘Étude Op. 10, No. 12’ by Frédéric Chopin and ‘Peter Piper’ by Run DMC. This is a fired up track that would even get non-fans totally pumped up!

Nas becomes nostalgic when describing the rise and RISE of his epic journey from Queens, NY towards being a multi-millionaire man of all trades.

“I’m still mental but not simple // Put your glass high if you made it out the stash spot// And here to tell your story and celebrate the glory // Drinks in the air for my niggas not here // This how we do, I see you DU // Queens to the heavens, salute the hood legends // This for the fallen soldiers Hold it down, I told you…”
