Netflix’s upcoming new series The Get Down continues to impress with it’s standout soundtrack. Following tracks from Miguel, and Janelle Monáe, rap legend Nas–who executive produced the show’s soundtrack–collaborates with British soul singer Michael Kiwanuka on “Rule The World (I Came from the City).”
“I came from the city,” raps Nas on his opening verse. “Got my name from the city / Where? The most dangerous city / Let’s take a trip back, back into time / 1977, it was maximum crime.”
According to Beats 1, Nas is actually rapping from the perspective of his Get Down character, Mr. Books.
The show, which stars Jaden Smith, Shameik Moore, Justice Smith, Jimmy Smits, and Giancarlo Esposito, premieres Friday and the soundtrack is set to drop on the same day via Apple Music.
