K’naan is out with the music video to his new single ‘Nothing To Lose’, featuring Nas, off the Canadian rapper’s EP ‘More Beautiful Than Silence’, out now on A&M/Octone.
“I come from the United States, and he’s from Somalia, so when he tells his story, it’s something new to my ears,” Nas said about the collaboration with K’naan. “It’s raw. It’s not coming from news channels; it’s coming from someone who’s actually from there. And coming from where I come from, there’s similarities when you tell those stories. There’s also big differences between our worlds that a lot of kids don’t know about. So you put us on a record together, you bridge those gaps… you see what it is.”
