Nas On Heavy D Co-Producing The Don (Video)

After speaking on his contribution to a track set to appear on Nicki Minaj's upcoming LP, Nas breaks down his latest single "The Don" and speaks on the late Heavy D co-producing the gritty street banger.

Nas: “When Salaam played me the beat for it, I said, ‘That’s the single — do this and do that and we’re golden.’ So he started flipping it around. When we heard that Heavy D died, of course we were messed up, and Salaam called me and told me, ‘You know your record “The Don”? You know who gave me that, right?’ He’s like, ‘Heavy D gave me that. He liked what we did with the other single, “Nasty,” and he sent me this record.’ And the rest is history. So rest in peace, Heavy D.”
