"Cops Shot the Kid," the highpoint of Nas' new Kanye West-helmed album NASIR, got a rework from Consequence's six-year-old son Caiden last month. In his version of the Andrew Dawson-assisted cut, Caiden broached the same ever-pertinent topics covered in Nas' original.
Now, in the remix's official video, Caiden explores the issues of police brutality and social injustice at large on an even grander scale. The video is dedicated to the late Lesandro "Junior" Guzman-Feliz and "all those who have lost their lives at the hands of senseless violence." Catch the full thing, directed by Boat + Bridge, up top. Caiden's debut album Just Being a Kid is due later this year.
Previously, Caiden put his own spin on A Tribe Called Quest's "Can I Kick It." In 2017, Caiden shared his debut single "We the Minions (Yellow Diamonds)."
Meanwhile, Nas is already prepping a follow-up to NASIR. "It's another album that I already had been working on before [NASIR]," Nas told the crowd during an iHeartRadio Q&A with Angie Martinez in New York last month. "Since I did this, I gotta do something that, you know, goes in another direction a little bit. So I'm finishing up the next one."
The wait for the untitled project, Nas added, won't be long. "It's not gonna be that long because half of it was already there," he said. "I did do something with Swizz, I did stuff with RZA. I'm a big Wu-Tang fan. RZA's real."
