It’s hard to say goodbye, but Nas has clearly moved on. It’s been two years since God’s Son and his ex-wife Kelis finalized their divorce, but with his latest music video the multiplatinum rap icon kisses his old life good bye and toasts to a new beginning.

The Aristotle-directed “Bye Baby” starts with a familiar scene as Nas sits in a white suit with Kelis’ green wedding dress draped across his knee. It’s the same scene captured on the front cover of Nasir’s latest masterpiece Life is Good. ‘Bye baby, I guess you know why I walked away/ When we walked to the alter that was an awesome day,” he begins to rap as a sampling of Guy’s 1988 track “Goodbye Love.” The video even features performance shots with the group’s lead singer Aaron Hall.

    This video and song was a necessity for you. Glad you made it out like a Man. You have really come a long way my brother. I first heard you back in '99 when I was 12 in my fam's car. 25 now, and I never turned my back. This is a journey between the artist and the listener. My family was born in Asmara, Eritrea, during difficult times. We encountered many trials and tribulations over the years, but we will make it out and I will not fail them. Over the years, your music has inspired and you've kept me grounded. You have exceeded expectations on every album. Illmatic, It was Written, The Firm, Nastradamus, QB's Finest, Stillmatic, God's Son, The Lost Tapes, Street's Disciple, Hip Hop is Dead, Untitled, Distant Relatives and now Life is GOOD. My God. The teachings and character you exude within these albums is that shit I respect. Real recognize real. Stand up niggas run shit. This is JT from Dallas, TX. Come back out to The House of Blues fam. We goin' to pack it out. I'm out, 1.

    - JT
