Last night, Run The Jewels found a great way to celebrate the release of their monster sophomore album RTJ2: They hosted a screening of The Warriors, basically the best movie ever, at Brooklyn’s Nitehawk Cinema. At the screening, they had a special guest: Nas, whose Mass Appeal label released RTJ2. And the old king took the opportunity to share “The Season,” a new track that has him rapping authoritatively over the late J Dilla’s “Gobstopper” instrumental. The fan-made video isn’t exactly the best way to hear the song, which isn’t scheduled for any sort of release right now, but you can hear it well enough in the video. Check it out below.
Is this the first time Nas has ever rapped on a Dilla beat? That can’t be possible, can it?
