In anticipation of this year's 2012 NFL Draft, rap veteran Nas recently released a commercial for the draft, which premiered earlier on ESPN (April 26)

To kick off the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft, rapper Nas collaborated with ESPN to drop a commercial promoting the anticipated draft.

""Nas was featured in a freestyle segment this morning for ESPN and the NFL draft. The Queens MC delivered some bars laced with names of the top prospects for this year's draft. Tune in tonight at 8pm eastern for the draft live from NYC.. (The Source)

While delivering a few athletically-themed bars over a catchy beat, the Queens rapper also name drops a few prospective players such as Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck.

"Nas has been going hard for the NFL. Last week he dropped a verse on Gary Clark Jr's "Bright Lights (Remix)" for the National Football league, and now Nas spit a few bars for draft night. He name drops NFL hopefuls like Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III." (Miss Info.)

Just recently, Nas revealed the title of his long-awaited solo-album, "Life is Good", as well as opened up on his own anticipation for the LP's mid-summer debut.

"It's been a long time, it's been years since I released a solo studio album, so this record is everything," he says. "This is everything that I've got to say--I guess you've got to live a little and you put that in your music, so it's coming from my life. ... A lot of the tracks have [come from ideas] where I would take an idea from one of the guys that I'm working with and try to put it together with a different sound that I had in my head, or with someone else. ... [I] just try to get people to collaborate who are not really used to working together and to get something different from me." (MTV)

A few days ago, Nasty revealed the exact awaited date that his latest solo effort would arrive, via a couple of tweets on his page.

"LIFE IS GOOD" - JULY 17th, 2012!!! #LIFEISGOOD717. Nas tweeted April 24th.
