Netflix’s The Get Down will premiere its soundtrack on Apple Music tonight as the series before the series debuts on the streaming service at midnight.

Across the last week, Zane Lowe and Ebro have premiered songs from the soundtrack on their respective Beats 1 radio shows. So far, the premieres have given us Miguel’s “Cadillac,” Janelle Monaé’s “Hum Along & Dance” and Raury & Jaden Smith’s “Losing Your Mind.”

Wednesday’s exclusive tune introduced the involvement of one of the show’s executive producers and actors, Nas, on Michael Kiwanuka’s new song, “Rule The World (I Came From The City).”

Where the show will head back to the late 1970s and navigate the beginnings of hip-hop culture amongst the youth, Nas takes the view point of his character, Mr. Books, looking back on the happenings of the show.
