Nas and Ox From ‘Belly’ Reunite for DJ Khaled’s “Nas Album Done” Video
While Nas's musical achievements are required learning for any hip-hop head, the Queensbridge rapper as well had a brief run as an actor in the late 90s and early 00s, starting with the 1998 crime drama Belly. Esco stars alongside DMX as gangsters looking to escape the game, but not before establishing ties with a Jamaican kingpin named Lennox, played by dancehall and reggae artist Louie Rankin.
For DJ Khaled, who is a don in his own right, orchestrating collaborations and moments few others could imagine, the video shoot for his track "Nas Album Done' provided an opportunity to reunite Nas and Rankin, Khaled forever having one foot in hip-hop and the other in reggae. The above video compiles several of Khaled's Snaps from the shoot for "Nas Album Done" which Khaled and Rankin refer to as the biggest visual you'll ever see.
The three look to be enjoying themselves in the Bahamas, engaging in some jet ski talk, Khaled effectively raising the anticipation for the video. "Nas Album Done" is featured on Khaled's latest album Major Key, which is officially his first to go No. 1 on the Billboard Album 200 charts. While Khaled has a penchant for making even the unlikeliest stars align, "Nas Album Done" is a solo statement, the song's title making one declaration, the ferocity with which Nas raps on it making another.
