Nas Presents Bravehearts New Album “Bravehearted 2” Out March 11th

Bravehearts are part of a legacy of Hip Hop that’s grown like a weed in a crack in the concrete of the Queensbridge housing projects in New York City. Originally signed to Columbia Records as part of Nas’ Ill Will Records imprint and consisting of Jungle (Nas’ younger brother), Wiz, Nashawn and Horse. In 2008 Bravehearts is comprised of Nasir Jones’ young cousin Nashawn Jones, and Nas’ brother, Jungle, aka Jibari Jones (son of jazz musician Olu Dara) with Nas co-signing and lending a verse here and there.

This album is a return to their gritty Queensbridge roots, with rugged and innovative beats from little-known local producers, giving it an edge many say was absent from Nas’ last album. The overall sound is startlingly amped-up at points becoming borderline dusted coming off like the bastard audio child of Madlib and Lil’ Jon. Add beats that alternately make the Bomb Squad sound tame and recall the brilliant pop smash of Jay-Z’s “Hard Knock Life”, with elements of the soulful minimal backing of 2000-era D’Angelo or Erykah Badu. The new album is set to hit stores March 11th via Mega Bucks Entertainment.
