Nas and Erykah Badu join forces for the beautiful new song “This Bitter Land.” The track is set to appear on the soundtrack for The Land, an upcoming film that is executive produced by Nas and Machine Gun Kelly.
The Land and its soundtrack will be released on July 29. The film focuses on the tale of Cleveland teenagers who participate in their city’s underground hip-hop scene. However, the film takes a sharp turn when the young kids get caught up in a dangerous drug deal that could ruin their relationships and possibly their future. The film is produced by Lizzie Friedman alongside Karen Lauder, Greg Little, Tyler Davidson, Stephen Love, and Blake Pickens. Badu is also in the film alongside The Wire’s Michael K. Williams.
