Nas celebrated the eve of his album release on The Late Show With David Letterman. “Look at this cover, that’s me everynight,” Letterman laughed, poking fun at the Life Is Good album cover, which features a photo of the king of Queensbridge with his ex-wife Kelis‘ wedding dress draped over his lap. Chest puffed out with pride, perhaps for his 10th album, or maybe for precious little girl, Nas hit the stage in a pair of shades and glowing white pants and shoes. He performed his confessional “Daughters” with a live band behind him, and he sure sounded serious when he warned, “When she date, we wait behind the door with a sawed-off, because we think nobody is good enough for our own daughter.” Our hearts melted when, with a smile and a hand over his heart, he punctuated the performance with, “LOVE!” Aww!
The Late Show With David Letterman
We love Beavis & Butthead creator Mike Judge’s animated video for “The Wind,” but it should be known that the Zac Brown Band jam hard with or without the fancy robo-treatment. Last night the Atlanta band dropped by The Late Show With David Letterman in flesh and blood to play the single off of their just released Uncaged. They dressed loosely but the performance was tight and polished, the bright fiddle being a particular highlight. And it left no doubt that, beer guzzling and duck hunting or just hanging out on late night, these guys have got what it takes to bring a place down.
