Nas Performs "The Don" on Kimmel

Nas' new record has him spitting ferociously, thoughtfully and constantly. Tuesday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Queens rap icon arrived in a crisp white tee, excited to be alive (looks like that Life Is Good album title's on point) and entertaining a huge crowd. Performing "The Don," Nas and his full band really brought out the jam's Super Cat sample for a strictly reggae intro. All that time with Damian Marley clearly hasn't worn off on Mr. Jones quite yet.

Oh, and congrats on your sixth No. 1 album, Nasir. Life is seriously good.
