Viva Friday: New Latin Jams by Becky G with Myke Towers, Raquel Sofía and More

By Billboard

Nas' heavily anticipated The Lost Tapes 2is slated to arrive next Friday, and prior to the project's release, Nasty Nas drops off a taste of what's to come with the jazzy "Jarreau of Rap (Skatt Attack)," featuring late Grammy-winning singer Al Jarreau and reknowned trumpeter Keyon Harrold.

The 45-year-old rapper exudes a hasty flow over the horn-tinged instrumental mixed with Jarreau vocals, which is a refreshing change compared to the pacing we're typically accustomed to from the Queensbridge native.

"Everybody's not gonna get you but keep going/ I be cruising 40,000 feet like I'm a boat/ Doubting me they said I would have no longevity/ Instead I'm steadily rapping these fundamentals/ I assemble synthesis/ Cuss so much that I'm unadventurous/ I've been uninterested/ Living life is what matters/ Chill I'm the humble bragger," Nas rhymes.

Gear up for The Lost Tapes 2 dropping July 19. For now, listen to "Jarreau of Rap (Skatt Attack)" below.
