New Nas: "Loco-Motive"


Another new one from Nas’s upcoming Life is Good is the Large Professor-featuring, classic hip-hop-indebted ode to making it through impossible odds “Loco-Motive.” Those subway sounds and Wild West chords (courtesy producer No I.D.) conjure up images of gritty New York cult films like The Warriors, and Nas hardly lets up on the witty ferocity over the song’s four minutes, with just a little help from the Professor, who mostly acts as hypeman. Nas dedicates this one to everyone “stuck in the nineties” – indeed, it makes us want to press rewind a little bit. Check it out – Life is Good drops July 17.
