Nas breaks down the concept behind his Life is Good album artwork [Video]

Brooklyn, NY – A few weeks ago Nas released the artwork for his upcoming tenth studio album Life is Good which shows him sitting on a plush black couch, in a cream coloured suit, a glass of champagne in hand with a green dress draped over his leg. From the expression on his face it looks like he’s confused and maybe questioning something. There was a lot of talk about the green dress in the picture, which ironically belongs to his ex-wife, Kelis; it was her wedding dress and the only item she left in their home after their divorce. Nas sat down with XXL Magazine to discuss the artwork more in depth.

Nas also put out a promotional video with the artwork that explains the theme and context of the album. Throughout his career, the emcee has had his share of ups and downs and this is exactly what the album is about. So far, his creative decisions and marketing moves for the album have been impressive. Get ready for July 17th! The artwork is below, and you can check out the video after the jump.

With juggling weekly meetings, managing a website, and planning events for hundreds of people Natasha takes refuge in urban music. Researching and knowing the latest headlines, and newest tracks in the hip-hop world is something that she loves. But more importantly for her hip-hop is a lot more than just a genre of music, it is a culture and it has shaped who she is today. Finding a way to combine her passion for music, the knowledge she has gained from working with young people and the issues she has seen in the community is a goal Natasha would like to achieve in the near future. Recently, Natasha has taken on PR work for rappers and DJs.
