DJ Khaled Drops “It’s Secured” Video Featuring Nas and Travis Scott

Last year’s DJ Khaled album, Major Key, delivered one of the most talked about rap moments of the year with “Nas Album Done,” a long awaited declaration from Nasty Nas, as fans impatiently awaited one of the most coveted albums in the game. The album may be completed, but a year later it hasn’t been released, but the Queensbridge legend is refusing to leave fans hanging. On Grateful, Khaled’s latest album, Nas forms an unlikely tandem with Travis Scott for “It’s Secured.”

The video is as cinematic as one would expect a DJ Khaled video to be at point on his quest to be the king of hyperbole. The clip opens with a wild police pursuit scene—chopper included—that eventually gives way to Khaled, Travis and Nas kicking it in a nearby warehouse. As was the case with last year’s “Nas Album Done” video, Khaled put all the finishing touches on this one, from the luxurious autos and threads to the cinematic setup of the Eif Rivera-directed clip, but it probably won’t reach the same level of hype “Nas Album Done” did. It’s tough to nail sequels, and with this year’s concept tailored more to DJ Khaled’s hashtags than the return of the great Nasir Jones, neither Nas nor Travis is able to truly bring home the record. Nas and Travis is a fascinating and risky tandem for a collaboration in 2017 however, and kudos to Khaled for taking a healthy hack at it.

Regardless, it’s exciting to see Nas get back into the swing of things, no matter how methodical that process has been. After teasing everything from a Justin Timberlake and Jay Z collaboration to the existence of a firm title for the LP several years ago, Nas has since taken his time with his follow-up to 2012’s Life is Good. Frankly, outside of “Nas Album Done,” there isn’t much public proof that the Nas album is actually done. But the man they sometimes call Esco has spoken up about the election of Trump and contributed to a handful of film and TV productions, including The Get Down and Silicon Valley.
