Nas Is 'Girl Crazy' In 'Nasty' Video
Nas gives us a tour of his Queens neighboorhood in the video for "Nasty."
"Nasty, directed by Jason Goldwatch who recently directed Pusha T's "Trouble On My Mind," captures Nasir Jones riding around Queensbridge in a Rolls Royce Phantom. Antonique Smith, who plays Faith Evans in "Notorious" (2009), appears in the Phantom alongside Nas when he rhymes, "Maserati, pumpin' Biggie, the great legend/ Blastin'/ I'm after the actress who played Faith Evans."
Although we'll have to wait till early next year to hear the final product, Nas tells Billboard.com he's "very comfortable" and "ready" to work on his tenth studio album. "I'm happy about music, it's pushing me back into the studio," Nas told Billboard.com's The Juice in May. "It's free flowing. There's not one concept that sums up the record."
As of now, the only confirmed feature on the album is Frank Ocean. "I had the chance to meet Frank. It was great. He's young. He has so much to give the world. He just so many great ideas," Nas told The Juice of Ocean. "Some of his lyrics, I udnerstand them a little too well. I'm a fan. I'm just happy to work with him."
