91: “Bridging The Gap” by Nas featuring Olu Dara

Check out that tiny little horn! Olu is sure of his masculinity.I was actually looking up Olu Dara when I found this video by his son, rapper Nas, from 2004.

It’s a strong mash-up of the past and present and a stirring homage from a grown man to his father.

Discovered my father’s music like Prince searching through boxes of purple rain.

Nas even glorifies the art of reading.  Somebody tell this guy he’s a rapper and he’s breaking some rules about what a rapper’s supposed to be like.

He wins some rap cred with the dancers on this video, though.  Damn.  Very classy, too.  For rap video girls.
