Nas, Gary Clark Jr. songs in draft coverage

By ESPN Front Row



ESPN enlisted influential hip-hop star Nas and Texas guitar virtuoso Gary Clark, Jr. to collaborate on the music for its three-day draft NFL draft telecast, from Thursday to Saturday.

A pair of new Nas songs — "Train" and "The Don," from his upcoming album "Life Is Good" — will be used along with Clark’s hit song "Bright Lights" coming in and out of commercial breaks and in highlight packages. Nas will also add a few lyrics of his own to "Bright Lights" that embody the vibe of the athlete and rising to the top, in this case, realizing the dream of playing professional football.
