Nas has released a short film to accompany his latest album, NASIR, which dropped during G.O.O.D. Music’s five-album run this past summer. Written and directed by Rohan Blair-Mangat (JAY-Z “Bam,” Dvsn “Too Deep”), the 16-minute music video connects the majesty of African history with the oppression of modern-day African-American life, delivering a powerful reminder of the royal heritage in the ‘hood.

Although NASIR‘s supporting cast (Kanye, Diddy, The-Dream, 070 Shake) is absent, the video does include a cameo from Slick Rick — as well as plenty of cinematic shots of God’s Son himself.

The Black Eyed Peas are back with their first album in eight years, Masters of the Sun Vol. 1. If, like me, you’re not exactly rushing out of bed on a Friday morning to bump a new Black Eyes Peas album, then maybe the guest list will pique your interest. Marking a return to the group’s more true school hip-hop sensibilities (which may or may not have something to do with Fergie’s departure), will.i.am and co. have tapped guest spots from Nas, Slick Rick, De La Soul’s Posdnuos and A Tribe Called Quest’s Phife Dawg (RIP) and Ali Shaheed Muhammad.

Hit the jump to hear the Nas-assisted opener “Back 2 Hip Hop” (which nods to Nas and will.i.am’s “Hip Hop Is Dead”) and the Phife, Posdnuos and Ali Shaheed-featuring “All Around the World” (which interpolates Tribe’s “Award Tour”). You can stream the full album here if you’re that way inclined.
