Video: K'naan x Nas 'Nothing To Lose'

[embed width="600"][/embed]


K'naan and Nas link up with a keffiyeh-donning crew to trek the streets of Toronto, visit neighborhood spots like Poets & Pirates Cafe and hang with Marlo Stanfield [2:44]. K’naan raps rocks, chucks and Fugees while Nas spits Somali war lines — they each also give a spoken summation of the "Nothing To Lose" youth paradigm.

Check out OKP's exclusive interview with both MCs on the set of the music video. And read our in-depth talk with K'naan on working with Nas and transnational identities. More Beautiful Than Silence EP is available now.
