It might not be a fair assessment, but there does appear to be a stigma surrounding soundtrack songs as a general rule. While there are many exceptions — especially on OSTs helmed and curated by competent rappers like 8 Mile and Black Panther — seldom do these soundtrack cuts reach that album quality benchmark. Today, Nas has come through to flip the script on its head with “Fallen Stars Flying,” a new track off HBO’s Between The World And Me Soundtrack. And judging from a preliminary listen of the lyrically-potent drop, he succeeded in doing exactly that.

“Heavy gold chains and velours, body language boss, on this highly dangerous course between the streets and up north,” he raps, in his opening verse. “Carti’ specs, pray the angels direct my walk / I just talked with big homie up in federal court.” Though King’s Disease was a breath of fresh air for Nas fans, “Fallen Stars Flying” does feel a little closer to his vintage sound — vividly rendered storytelling over gritty sample-based production. Fans will be pleased to see another solid drop from the legendary lyricist, and should this be the caliber Between The World And Me is bringing to the table, perhaps we’ll see more where that came from.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Heavy gold chains and velours, body language boss
On this highly dangerous course between the streets and up north
Carti’ specs, pray the angels direct my walk
I just talked with big homie up in federal court
He was double-crossed, nowadays staying real is a loss
‘Cause cowards prey on niggas with good hearts
So I pray for them, they violate this way
I got the ‘K for them, but I refrain from doing shaitans work
We doin’ wrong taking our face off Earth
Black victory, I envision Tiffany blue coups
Angels pop out the hood like “poof,” black youth
What’s the science? Man, we the fallen stars flying

[Chorus]
Black youth, flying, fallen stars, black youth
Fly-flying, fallen stars flying
Angels pop out the hood like “poof”
No-nowadays staying real is a loss (So I pray for them)
Black youth, flying, fallen stars, black youth
Fly-flying, fallen stars flying
Black youth (flying high), fallen stars flying
Angels pop out the hood like “poof” (So I pray for them)

[Verse 2]
When you a strong stand-tall soldier
They lean on you, expectin’ you not to fall over
Like you never feel pressure, like you made of steel
So I absorb your pain, I like to see you chill
But the shit start weighin’ on me
Liftin’ you up without a day off, homie
It’s gettin’ hard, plus the haters on me
I met a young queen, the little girl asked for my autograph
She said my verse from “Black Girl Lost” made her find her way
She said she got tatted wings on her back
So when she want she can fly away

[Chorus]
Black youth, flying, fallen stars, black youth
Fly-flying, fallen stars flying
Angels pop out the hood like “poof”
No-nowadays staying real is a loss (So I pray for them)
Black youth, flying, fallen stars, black youth
Fly-flying, fallen stars flying
Black youth (flying high), fallen stars flying
Angels pop out the hood like “poof” (So I pray for them)

[Post-Chorus]
Pray for them
Pray for them
Pray for them
Pray for them

[Outro]
Black youth
Fallen stars flying
Angels pop out the hood like “poof”
No-nowadays staying real is a loss (So I pray for them)
Black youth, fallen stars
Black youth, fallen stars
Black youth, flying high
Angels pop out the hood like “poof” (So I pray for them)
