VIDEO: Nas – TDK Chronicles

Nas and TDK teamed up to create a short film about his childhood experience. In the preview clip above, God’s Son details the not so easy task of taping different radio stations back in the day. Nas’ film is directed by Jonathan Mannion and will debut on January 19. No word about whether that story about the tech on the dresser made the cut.

And this is as good excuse as any to post the criminally underrated “Thief’s Theme.”

The homie Gav Lyle has been working with the esteemed Shawn J.
