Whether you see him as a genius or a hater, it is hard to deny that Nas has legendary lyrical ability. On the single Less Than an Hour, off of the Rush Hour 3 soundtrack and an upcoming greatest hits album, Nas showcases this skill once again. Moving from one point to the next rather smoothly, Nas displays his poetic mastery, proving exactly why he is considered one of the best ever. Duly accompanied by Cee-Lo‘s eccentrically soulful vocals, Less Than an Hour might will not be a charting hit, but it certainly belongs in any old-school or indie-style music fan’s collection.
