Nas & Erykah Badu Release “The Bitter Land”

Nas and Erykah Badu have joined forces on their powerful new single, “The Bitter Land,” from the motion picture soundtrack of The Land.

TRAILER: ‘The Land’ Executive Produced By Nas – Starring Erykah Badu & Michael K. Williams

Erykah’s vocals are as gorgeous and haunting as Billie Holiday singing “Strange Fruit” and Nas drives it all home as he raps:

Cops shot us up
He get a medal then retire
But they never will defy me
Write a letter to the President whoever in control of this society
Tell em to stop riding me
Stop driving us into a suicidal ideology

Listen to “The Bitter Land” below.

 

 

The Land soundtrack drops on July 29.
