Nas drops “Life is Good” free album stream

Nas‘ “Life is Good” dropped today. The New York rapper’s tenth studio album features Swizz Beatz, Mary J. Blige, Rick Ross, Amy Winehouse, and others. Along with the album’s regular release, Escobar made the LP available as a free stream on Grooveshark.

In an interview with Billboard, Nasty Nas compared the LP to Marvin Gaye‘s “Here My Dear,” saying “I thought Here, My Dear was brave, beautiful, honest, scary and daring. I remember putting several artists on to it, from Maxwell to Jay-Z…I couldn’t imagine what Marvin was going through when he was recording it. And I couldn’t imagine me being in a similar position, years later…when I started working on the record, I tried to avoid [getting too personal]. The timing was just calling for me to not avoid all the shit that was going on out there. It was like a 10,000-ton gorilla in the room watching me. This is the way I got it off of my chest. This album talks about life, love and money. It talks about the fact that marriage is expensive. Life Is Good represents the most beautiful, dramatic and heavy moments in my life.”
