07 Jun Frank Ocean and Nas are Collaborating on “No Such Thing as White Jesus” [News]
Hit-Boy has shared a snippet of a long-lost Nas song called “No Such Thing As White Jesus”, which features Frank Ocean singing the line, “Put a crown on your head and remove the chains”. The producer shared the clip via his Instagram, with the caption, “Found these files finally. For real this time. Frank ocean and Nas whattup.” No word yet on when the finished song is coming out.
According to MTV, “No Such Thing as White Jesus” was originally supposed to be on Nas’Life Is Good LP– and according to the New York Times, it was “unfortunately lost to a technological mishap”. (Hurray for backup systems!) According to the report, the song contains the lines, “Whatever you do, young king, don’t wind up dead/ Young queen, cross your legs/ Put a crown on your head and remove the chains/ ’Cause even diamond chains are for slaves/ Don’t set foot in no penitentiary/ And don’t taste the poison/ Don’t you bail on your families”.
