Jarreau of Rap - Nas
Updated: Jul 31, 2019
Nas has a new Lost Tapes compilation coming so of course this means we get a trolly single yanked from Nasty’s archives. In this case, it’s “Jarreauof Rap”, a jazzy, silly, simultaneously grandiose bit of fun. People are acting shocked at this song but I think it’s a logical development of the same guy who made “I Know I Can”. Nas has fun playing with the jazzy/classical side of samples, juxtaposing them against his increasingly vintage but still hyper-proficient rap styles.
