Nas rhymes “Vocal chords got insurance” and “not Superman or Invincible,” for the visuals of his collaboration with Hit-Boy on “The Tide.”
Third Eye Raz directed the music video that shows New York and throwback clips. We see paintings in an art gallery and playing a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden. It reckons with the all-too-common ill fate of rappers: “‘Cause when you make it from the bottom, they gon’ come for your top / Yeah, when you doin’ you, they don’t like that sh*t,” Hit-Boy raps, name-dropping the late PnB Rock and Takeoff.
The music video has been added to WorldWide Video Zone rotation. Wonder what visuals will be next from the legendary rap artist that got ranked number three by Billboard and Vibe Magazine for its top 50 rappers ever.
