Nas has already began working on his follow-up album to the extremely well-received, Life Is Good.

He may still text his ex-wife and his crib in Georgia just got auctioned off after a foreclosure, but life is still good for Nas. The Top 5 dead or alive MC releases the latest video, “A Queens Story,” from his critically acclaimed Life Is Good album.
