Nas’ Life Is Good Set To Arrive July 17th

Fans can expect the return of the Don this summer.

According to Def Jam, Nas’ 10th studio album, Life Is Good, is scheduled to arrive in-stores July 17 on Def Jam Recordings. The announcement comes as the QB lyricist’s new single, “The Don,” produced by Da Internz, Salaam Remi and the late Heavy D, made its premiere last month on Hot 97′s Funkmaster Flex radio show. The track’s music video, directed by up-and-coming young director Aristotle Torres, is set to be premiering this Friday (April 27) via MTV and VEVO. It doesn’t stop there however, the album’s third single titled, “Daughters,” which is produced by No I.D., will be arriving for digital release May 1st.

Life Is Good, Nas’ 10th studio album, will be Esco’s first new solo studio album in four years following the release of his certified gold, Grammy-nominated untitled album in 2008. The album received critical acclaim especially for it closing track, “N.I.G.G.E.R. (The Slave and The Master)” produced by DJ Toomp.

The release date announcement couldn’t have come at a better time, as Nas’ VH1 Behind The Music special aired last week, marking the music bio franchises’ highest rated special for the year thus far.

Nas gained momentum for the album, beginning last summer with the single “Nasty,” but tapered down until the April 3 release of “The Don.” He peppered listeners with featured appearances on both Nicki Minaj and Tyga’s album.
