‘NASIR – The Film’ trailer.

Just days ago (Nov. 13), Nas teased plansfor some form of a visual he would be involved with. On Thursday (Nov. 15), he released the Nasir short film in support of his eleventh studio album by the same name, which dropped back in June as part of Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music summer rollout.

Some initially believed that a solo music video would arrive this week, but the Queensbridge native decided to go a step further and deliver an in-depth visual telling the story of his 2018 LP. The iconic MC collaborated with director Rohan Blair-Mangat, who helmed the flick, and Mass Appeal on the fresh venture.

Nas performs at BET Jams Presents: 2018 BET Experience Staples Center Concert, sponsored by Nissan, at L.A. Live on June 21, 2018 in Los Angeles.

The 16-minute clip implements vocals from each of the seven tracks featured on Nasir, but delves deeper into peeling back the layers regarding social and economic issues severely hampering the minority communities. Nas candidly harps on police brutality, which was a frequent theme used throughout the album on tracks such as “Cops Shot the Kid.”

Watch the Nasir short film below.
