On a list of statements we didn't think we'd be making during the middle of this year's SXSW, "Nas
is back!" was probably near the top. Regardless, the man behind Illmatic
, a regular contender for greatest rap album of all time, has dropped his first track since November's surprisingly hot "Nasty." The new track, "The Don," sees Nas capturing an Illmatic
level flow and hard-hitting rhymes over beats produced by Heavy D. Nas's career has been in a steady decline for a decade now, but if these last two singles are signs, we might want to start getting excited for a new LP from this hip-hop legend.
