Nas "World's an Addiction" (ft. Anthony Hamilton) (live on 'Conan')
Published Nov 30, 2012At least album title-wise, veteran rap artist Nas claimed Life Is Good on his recent LP, but the dude seemed a bit conflicted during his delivery of "World's an Addiction" on Late Night with Conan O'Brien last night (November 29). The full-band performance had the dude offer up the sparse, flip-flopping vocal run "Life…Joy…Pain…Loyalty…Betrayal," before introducing guest vocalist Anthony Hamilton, who delivered a deep and throaty hook.
The life-contemplating tune, which at one point has Nas reminiscently rhyming about his purpose from the back of a paddy wagon, resonated with lanky comic legend O'Brien, who whispered into the rapper's ear that he "killed that" before reiterating to the crowd how fantastic the performance was.
