Nas Inspires a New Dallas Penn Video

The sounds and visuals of blackness from the mind of Dallas Penn.

You should have probably expected that the Queens native Dallas Penn would have something to say about Nas’ new album, Life Is Good.

“Hip-Hop was always my barometer for what the good life should be. Sometimes that meant getting fresh and going to a party. Other times it meant gaining knowledge of self and going to college to gain knowledge of the world. Hip-Hop was info, style, communication, art, food, sex, everything. NaS new album reminds me that Hip-Hop can still be all of those things.”

Dallas makes it an audio visual experience in his response to “Nasty” through a video that shows perspective on the black renaissance in cinema. During the 1950s and ’60s, a good life for blacks had signs of improvement as they made progress in the film industry, even during the climate of discrimination in America. Dallas conveys that form of edutainment.
