Nas Records Election Song
Rapper Nas has recorded a song in honour of America's historic presidential election on Tuesday (04Nov08).
The hip-hop star missed the poll as he is currently on tour in Norway and decided on the eve of the vote to write a track, dedicated to the eventual winner Barack Obama.
Producer DJ Green Lantern tells MTV.com, "I'm currently on tour in Europe with Nas and we were at dinner talking about how crazy it is that we're not in the states on Election Day. Someone quoted his verse from (his song) Black President, when he said 'What's the Black Prez thinkin' on Election Night?' And Nas said, 'Set up the mic - I'm gonna speak on that.' And the result is (the song) Election Night."
