Divine said, “Nas is my idol, I have looked up to him all my life.”
Rapper Divine and Naezy have together created a new track called NY Se Mumbai, featuring US Hip Hop Star Nas.
NY se Mumbai is the end credit song for Gully Boy, starring Ranveer and Alia Bhatt. Nas is an executive producer for the forthcoming film.
The global collaboration also starts producer iLL Wayno, and Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh.
“Nas is my idol, I’ve looked up to him all my life. When I first heard his album Illmatic, it gave me the chills, I was inspired to tell my story. I saw him perform in Dubai recently” Divine said in a statement.
He added: “I was shook and inspired all over again. I cannot digest that I’m on the same beat as him. Big shout out to everyone that made this happen. And Naezy is back.”
Wayno said: “Working on NY se Mumbai, for me, was an affirmation of my understanding that hip-hop has a global reach, and cultures around the world are more similar than they are different.”
