Nas references Prince Charles plus ‘tea, biscuits and crumpets’ in new track

The rapper previewed his new J Dilla-produced track 'The Season' last night in Brooklyn

Nas has previewed a new track, in which the rapper pays tribute to Prince Charles.

The legendary MC made an appearance at the Run The Jewels album launch at Nitehawk Cinemas in Brooklyn last night (October 29), playing a snippet of a song called ‘The Season’. In the track, Nas raps “You can tell by the trumpets, Prince of Wales sent me tea, biscuits, crumpets”.

The track also features production from the late J Dilla, with the beat from ‘Gobstopper’ forming the foundations for the new track.

Nas’ label Mass Appeal were responsible for releasing Run The Jewels’ second album ‘RTJ2’, which came out last week.

Meanwhile, Nas recently appeared on US TV show ‘Finding Your Roots’, in which he found out about the history of his enslaved ancestors.

In the episode, Nas is presented with historical documents and photographs of his ancesters, including an 1859 bill of sale for his third great grandmother named Pocohantas. It is revealed she was purchased for $830 at the age of 15.
