Next Thursday marks this year’s NFL Draft, when the best and brightest college football players will find out what their near future holds. In celebration of the occasion, Nas and Austin-based blues musician Gary Clark Jr. hit the studio together to rework the laters “Bright Lights,” and transform it into a draft night anthem. The Clark Jr. original now features some inspirational verses from Nas, who sounds right at home over the bluesy guitars and crunchy drums.
For those of you that are interested the draft airs at 8 p.m. on April 26, and for those of you that say R&B is missing the blues, you can get a heavy dose by checking out Gary Clark Jr.’s ‘Bright Lights’ EP, which is out now.[audio:https://www.thisisrnb.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Gary-Clark-Jr.-feat.-Nas-Bright-Lights.mp3|titles=Gary Clark Jr. feat.
