Times Square pioneers.

The standout track from Swizz Beatz compilation album, Poison, is the DJ Scratch-produced “Echo:” an epic track in which hip-hop legend Nas reflects on everything from growing up in New York City in the ’80s to the United States being at war with ISIS. (There’s a lot in this verse.)

It’s the finest Nas performance of the year. Swizz Beatz has just released the video for the track. It’s well known that Swizz is an art aficionado, and that is reflected in this video, which is, at times, visually stunning, and features numerous breathtaking set pieces.
