Nas and Jack White erform “One Mic” for The American Epic Sessions.

The latest clip to be released from The American Epic Sessions, the new PBS miniseries about the history of American music co-produced by Jack White, is a performance of NasStillmatic classic “One Mic.”

Nas’ backing band is a piano trio (piano, upright bass, drums) led by White. As with the other performances that have been released from the series (like White and Elton John’s blues collaboration “Two Fingers of Whiskey,“) the performance is recorded using vintage equipment and pressed to record live.

We’ve also seen footage of Nas and White collaborating on a cover of the 1920s blues standard “On the Road Again” in a trailer for the project.
