Seems like Nat King Cole has been busy lately. Apparently, he’s spent the last several months in the studio with some of hip-hop’s most brilliant artists, such as Nas, The Roots, Just Blaze, Cee-Lo, and will.i.am, who have all brought their distinct styles to some of Cole’s most memorable recordings for RE: Generations (Capitol/EMI). This collabo will also feature some of the biggest names in Latin, reggae and rock, creating a colorful mash-up of two centuries.
