As well as Netflix’ The Get Down, Nas has a heavy hand in the film The Land as an executive producer of and contributor both the film and its soundtrack.
With the film out now, the first video from its soundtrack has arrived: “Goodbye,” from newcomer Ezzy. Director Steven Caple Jr describes the video: “‘Goodbye’ is a love letter to the neighborhood and the struggle. It has the classic hip hop vibe with fresh lyrics. Ezzy wrote the perfect song for the film, we wanted that feel-good energy that lifts people’s spirits. So to be able to direct the video and collaborate with Ezzy and Rafi, who produced the track in a closet of a hotel, was special. As we share it with the world it becomes an open love letter.”
