Nas-Run-The-Jewels (1)To celebrate the release of their dynamite new record, Run the Jewels 2, rappers El-P and Killer MikeĀ held a release party at Nitehawk to answer some questions, and to get drunk while watching The Warriors. Before they rolled out the gangland classic, the duo (and Mass Appeal’s Sacha Jenkins) brought out legendary Queensboro lyricist Nas, who debuted his new track “The Season,” produced by late Detroit producer J Dilla.

It was the track that launched a thousand blog posts. We were excited, the crowd was excited, El-P and Killer Mike were clearly excited. It was awesome. Video below.
