Nas has released a new video for “Ultra Black” that is a joyful celebration of Black families and culture.
In the clip, helmed by Spike Jordan, the New York performs from his kitchen, while producer Hit-Boy crafts the beats on the go. While Nas raps about Black love, family and culture, the clip cuts to shots of couples walking hand-in-hand, fathers bathing their babies and children hugging their parents.
It’s a wholesome video that stands in contrast to the recent headlines spurred by the song’s lyric which dissed Doja Cat—though the “Say So” rapper wasn’t bothered.
“Ultra Black” is a cut from Nas’ latest album, King’s Disease, which arrived last week. It featured appearances from Big Sean, Charlie Wilson, Don Toliver, Lil Durk, Foxy Brown, A$AP Ferg and more.
