After some 20+ years in the game, Nas has no problem displaying his subsequent wealth and success in the music video for “The Don”. His hard work has afforded him all the best things life has to offer, like fancy cigars, tailored suits, and champagne brunches on rooftops.

It’s not easy to balance both worlds and accompanying sensibilities, but Nas makes it look a gold-plated cakewalk. Watch the video below.
Nas 10th studio album, Life Is Good, is slated to hit stores July 17th via Def Jam Records.
