Nas "The Don" Song Review — 4.5 out of 5 stars
Wed, 04 Apr 2012 10:45:58
Nas comes out of the gate swinging on his brand new single, "The Don".
The legendary MC returns to the streets with a gritty, no-frills salvo that practically explodes on impact. With its airy beat, sample, and bass thud, "The Don" echoes Illmatic, while brandishing a precise, potent lyrical poetry honed by 20 years in the game. It's a declaration and a warning like all of Nas's greatest output. Salaam Remi's production sizzles like summer sun on the concrete, while the rapper's verses remain both catchy and commanding. A piano break signals a new chapter as Nas's fire can't be extinguished with line after line of uncontainable energy.
