Video: J.Cole Explains “Let Nas Down”

One of the most buzzed about tracks on Born Sinner is Cole’s tale of disappointing his idol Nas with his 2011 single “Work Out”. In this clip from a listening session in NYC last night, Cole breaks down the whole story, from how the song ended up as a single after several missteps to him eventually getting a phone call telling him that Nas wasn’t feeling it.

Pt. 2 and a stream of “Let Nas Down” after the jump.

    If you with someone for 20 years, how many times she done let another nigga get in her guts or bust on her face

    J.Cole is a fuckboy in every sense. He fell into a deep depression after he was told that Nas didnt like workout. This was the pain he was talking about in yesterdays listening session. Heres a tissue for your sorrows.
