This track concluded one of the biggest weeks in hip hop of 2013 so far.
J. Cole proves that he did not Let Nas Down, but rather #MadeNasProud.
It is the ultimate compliment for Cole to have the legendary Nasir Jones, Queensbridge emcee and one of hip hops living legends, donning his skill on the original beat of the standout Born Sinner track.
The new bars offer Nas‘ perspective of the track:
“While you was writing down my rhymes, I was just tryna show you that if you say what’s in your mind, you could stand the test of time/Now I’m playing Born Sinner loud,” Nas raps on the track. “You made your n—a Nas proud. So you ain’t let Nas let down, it’s just part of the game, becoming a rap king my n—-/You ain’t let Nas down.”
“How that sound? Here’s the crown, pass it to you like nothin’/You ain’t let Nas down.”
“Long live the idols, may they never be your rivals,” Nas tweeted, quoting Cole‘s hook on the original track, and adding, “I ain’t put out no shit in a minute!” before they dropped the song. Nas tweeted up a storm about the new release and Cole responded with gratitude.
You made me proud man… RT @JColeNC: @Nas thank you
