Nas ft. Keri Hilson - Hero

Featuring:
Producer:
Polow da Don
Album:

Nas is all about controversy. After “Baracking” the mic on his mixtape jam, Black President, the Brooklyn lyricist is back with Hero, the first official single off his Untitled album. As can be expected, Nas is his typical brutally honest self, cramming a handful of provocative rhymes into every bar with a furious intensity. His three verses are backed by the unlikely production of Polow Da Don, who provides an energetic beat laced with a music box synth dancing above epic drums. While nobody really knows what to expect from Untitled, which drops July 15, songs like Hero indicate that Nasir Jones is once again out for blood. Let’s just hope that the album lives up to all its hype, because the man is already angry enough as it is.

Note:  The streaming of “Hero” has temporarily been suspended.
