Made Nas Proud: J Cole Featuring Nas: Let Nas Down

Sun, Jun 23, 2013 at 12:49 PM by User 4 Comments

It’s well known that J. Cole’s sophomore album, Born Sinner, features a track entitled Let Nas Down. The lyrics of the song tell the story of how J. Cole first met Nas on tour, and Cole’s astonishment at hearing that the legendary MC was a fan of his work.

J. Cole goes on to discuss his search for a radio-worthy single for his debut album, and the guilt he felt when he heard Nas’s reaction to his track Work Out. Cole enlightens the listener on the exchange between himself and No ID (the executive producer of Nas’s album Life Is Good). 

Well, it looks like Nas has decided to respond to J. Cole’s track and tell his side of the story, using the same beat that J. Cole rapped over on Let Nas Down. Listen to Nas’s response below in the track entitled Made Nas Proud.

    It's no surprise that the King sought to continue to enlighten and up lift the young God. Should anyone have expected anything else then they truly need to learn and read more about the King. Dope track on how the two meet in the middle and build from their. That track cant be brought! One thing for sure it will go down in history about and J Cole has a son dedicated to him from the Godson on his track accepting homage and playing it forward. One Love to J Cole and the Godson, Nasty Nas, Da Don Dada himself King Nas.
