Nas Nasty Dallas Penn

Nas Inspires a New Dallas Penn Video

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.
