Tobe Nwigwe & Nas Join Forces With Jacob Banks For "On My Soul" Song From "Transformers: Rise Of The
There's plenty to check out this New Music Friday (May 19), though hip-hop heads, in particular, may be interested in a collaborative effort from Grammy-nominated artist Tobe Nwigwe and legendary lyricist Nas. The duo came together along with Jacob Banks to share the lead single from the forthcoming Transformers: Rise of the Beasts film, and certainly didn't disappoint. While Tobe starts off strong on the chorus and first verse, the singer lends his talents to the bridge, crooning out, "Bring me the smoke and I'll build you a fire / To burn my desire, burn my desire."
Afterward, it's Nas' turn to shine. "Don't slander all the banter / Just one answer, I'm an animal," he begins the song's second verse. "I'm just one man, outstandin' though / Part wolf, part king, part Hannibal," the New Yorker's rhymes continue. To close out "On My Soul," all three creatives come together on a final chorus, showing off their respective talents and generating buzz for what else is to come from the soundtrack.

While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter in April, director Steven Caple Jr. hinted that some other noteworthy names will appear as well. "We have A Tribe Called Quest, we have Wu-Tang [Clan]," he revealed, also hinting at Nas' appearance by saying, "We have a legacy artist who's blessing us with a new track for our film, and I'm so excited about that. ... He's from the '90s, but I would say that he's arguably one of the top three rappers to ever live."
