As the release date of Nas’ new untitled album draws closer, the anticipation is intensified. That anticipation has almost reached a new level of pandemonium as the legendary MC has leaked track after track of his most incendiary material yet. His latest leaked track “Fried Chicken” featuring Busta Rhymes is a conceptual song that is in keeping with the theme of racial politics, identity and controversy of the new album. The Mark Ronson produced track injects the producers instantly recognizable horn stabs and old soul flair over classic hip hop drums to head nodding effect. Nas and Busta drop rhymes that can either be described as a tongue and cheek ode to the female persuasion or literally a song about greasy high fat food and the stereotypes that go along with it. In less capable hands the idea would be incredibly contrived and corny but with Nas’ lyricism and Busta’s humor the track hits all the right notes.
