Nas’ latest album Nasir did not get too much love from listeners but there were a few songs on the album that stood out.
The Slick Rick sampled ‘Cops Shot the Kid’ was produced by and features a guest verse from Kanye West but he does not make an appearance in the music video which you can watch below. A young black man is targeted by racial profiling and police brutality in the clip, giving the song’s content some more light. Slick Rick also makes a brief cameo in the end.
Back in November, Nas released a short film featuring songs from the album.
