nas-628x410

Pardon me while I silently fangirl as Nas, arguably one of the best rappers of our generation, shares another lyrical gem, “Angel Dust”. The single was premiered on this season’s follow-up to the Netflix original, “The Get Down,” where Esco is Executive Producer.

The track was designed to bring both listeners and viewers back to New York City in the 80’s, a time when poverty, violence and drugs plagued the streets of The Big Apple’s boroughs; “Illegal substances constructing, but plus addicted / Trust it and respect it, almost got me arrested / All of the time I invested in school is now of question / Child prone to violence like a dog returns to it’s own father / The fool for chaos, taking what we can salvage.”

Never shy to shed light on reality, Nas goes on to walk the listeners through the experience of living through his state of awareness during the difficult times brought to his community.
