Nas Escobar, one of Hip-Hops most celebrated MCs is ready to make his re-entrance into the rap game with his newly titled album "Life Is Good." On July 16th, Monday night Moet & Chandon and hip-hop icon Nasir "Nas Jones hosted a 200-person party of Nas' highly anticipated Life is Good album release to initiate the Moet Rose Lounge series in his native city of New York. The event was hosted at the newly opened Bagatelle in NYC. Celebrities attended Wale, Jermaine Dupree, Eric Benet , Jay Z and Beyonce.
Nas said," style is timeless. I hear it in a lot of people and it reminds me how timeless it is, the kind of style I do. And once I hit it, and it's right, it's golden. If I'm a little off with it? Ahh, I can't even listen to the song ever again. I'm just trying to perfect it so that it's right and it doesn't sound like I'm just doing something I [already] did. It feels fresh; like this is the first time I'm ever doing it."
Critics have heaped critical praise on Nas ever since his Illmatic debut was deemed a classic back in 1994. But the "Hate Me Now" MC has still been endured his fair share of criticism over the years. And he may be his own worst critic.
Singles from the album: Nasty, "The Don", "Daughters", "Accident Murders" and "Loco-Motive". The highly anticipated album features guest appearances by Mary J Blidge, Rick Ross, Miguel and the late Amy Winehouse.
