Nubbz - 'Till Sunset' (Remix Collection)

Nubbz quickly became a Gs Use Emoticons favorite when he released his remix project In A Minute, and the Dutch producer has added more than a few gems to his collection since then.

Nubbz' take on Childish Gambino's "Fire Fly" and Blu's "Soul Provider" spread around the net like wildfire, and his new project Till Sunset bundles those tracks with four more featuring Nas, Danny Brown, Freddie Gibbs, and CL Smooth. Vibe out to Till Sunset below, and be sure to hit the comments with your thoughts!

Nas - "#MadeNasProud" (J. Cole Response)

As a response to the powerful Born Sinner track "Let Nas Down," in which J. Cole reveals Nas' disappointment with his first official single "Work Out," Nasir pays the ultimate respect by tipping his hat to the young star. This song is already really special to their fans, so I can only imagine how special Nas' words are to Cole.

Hit the jump to see J. Cole describe Nas' reaction when hearing "Let Nas Down."

Nas Lost To Whom?!?! A complete list of Nas' Grammy Snubs

When someone's had a career as fruitful as Nasir Jones has, it goes without saying that he should have more than a few Grammys under his belt. To the horror of many hip hop fans (myself included), Nas boasts 0, despite being nominated a whopping 9 times.

Immediately I wondered, who took home the golden award? Were the victors the rap reincarnation of Milli Vanilli, or were they deserving opponents? Take a look at Nas' Grammy snubs over the years, and wish him luck as he's nominated for 3 awards tonight thanks to the commercial and critical success of Life Is Good.

Lost to: LL Cool J - "Hey Lover"


Best Rap Album for "I Am..."

Nas & Anthony Hamilton Perform "World's An Addiction" Live On Conan [VIDEO]

I saw Nas when the Life Is Good/Black Rage tour stopped through Atlanta, and his band Z was one of the best I'd seen. Instead of having their vocalist Eddie Cole (who is amazing by the way) provide the hook to "World's An Addiction," Nasir brought out the man himself to perform the track live on Conan. Watch below as Anthony Hamilton and The Don bring some harsh realities to our attention.

Kelis Talks Nas's "Life Is Good" Album Cover [VIDEO]

Nas has made no secret that his split from ex-wife Kelis is a major theme in his upcoming album Life Is Good. On his Behind The Music episode he spoke on the pain he felt when Kelis left her wedding dress behind, and he even holds the dress on the cover for the album.

NME TV caught up with Kelis at the Isle of Wright Festival in England where she spoke on the Life Is Good cover.
“My feelings about it are not really relevant, but you know at the end of the day Nas is an artist. And for whatever it’s worth he’s one of the greatest, and especially for what it is he does. So for me, I feel like especially for someone in hip-hop to kind of be genuine and honest, whatever the honesty is about, I think it’s awesome. So my feelings about it aren’t really necessarily valid, it’s just the fact that as an artist I can respect that he wears his feelings on his sleeve.”
