Wake N' Watch: Nas' TDK Life on Record Chronicles

Over the years, the Queensbridge MC has openly cited his appreciation for records he grew up on, and we’ve noticed he’s most poignant and comprehensible when he speaks on a topic of his interest: the good ol’ days. Japanese company TDK, well known for its data storage media products, has sparked a new campaign featuring musicians with memories of using the company’s cassette tapes. Nas, growing up as a child of the ‘80s, has vivid memories of creating his own mixtapes off radio cuts. In this mini-documentary, we find an enthusiastic Nasir citing his list of favorite artists, the method he used to create mixes, and how it all affected his childhood growing up in QB. Although it’s a medium from a bygone era, the nostalgic qualities bring back old sentiments for the legendary rapper. Hear Mr. Jones tells his tales.
