Nas Protests Police Brutality In Powerful Cops Shot The Kid Video

Tuesday, 08 January 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Nas has unveiled a sobering music video for his 'Nasir' song, Cops Shot the Kid.

The visual finds a young unarmed black man being harrassed and shot by two white police officers, alongside clips of Nas rapping. There's also an appearance from Slick Rick towards the end, whose 1988 song Children's Story provides the main sample for the track.

At the end of last year, Nas released a short film called Nasir - The Film, which also featured snippets of his 2018 album of the same name.

Nas - Nasir (Album Review)
Tue 26 Jun 2018
For all that Kanye West and Donald Trump's ongoing public love-in has proven embarrassing and nightmarish for a whole host of reasons, one thing they do have in common is a shameless desire to promote their respective “brands” at every opportunity. West's decision to produce five projects over the course of one Wyoming session is an impressive endeavour in and of itself, but releasing them all within weeks of each other is narcissistic even by his standards.

Photo: Steven Traylor The theory that depression makes for good art is long-standing, and its proponents can certainly point to numerous examples, but it should also be a source of unease from an observer's perspective. If unchecked, the invisible link between artist and listener (or creator and beneficiary) can feel exploitative or voyeuristic. The behaviour of a small minority of entitled social media users, who complained when Earl Sweatshirt cancelled a European tour earlier this year following the death of his father, was just one illustration of this dynamic.
Gucci Mane - Evil Genius (Album Review)
Tue 18 Dec 2018
One of the advantages in helping to pioneer an entire subgenre of music is that no one has grounds to complain when you eventually move into new territory. Bearing that in mind, you'd expect Gucci Mane, one of the architects of southern trap in the mid-2000s, to have tried his hand at something else by now. However, across 12 albums and a disputed number of mixtapes (online catalogues suggest around 70), the Atlanta-based rapper has uniformly stuck to the distinctively heavy bass sound he helped originate.
