This week, both Puff Daddy and Slick went to Instagram to show Nas some support.
Yesterday, Nas finally let loose his 16-minute NASIR album-inspired visual.
Over the past few days, Nas has teased followers with preview clips aimed at the Thursday premiere.
In July, Nas low-key revealed he has a new album on deck.
“It’s another album that I already had been working on before [the one with] Kanye,” he told Martinez. “Since I did this, I gotta do something that goes into another direction a little bit. I’m finishing up the next one.” Nas confirms he’s done work with Swizz Beatz and RZA (“I’m a big Wu-Tang fan”). He also acknowledged the six-year gap between 2012’s Life Is Good and this summer’s Nasir, promising the wait for his next album won’t be as long. “All the time that went by, it’s dope because now I get to do it from another level,” he said. “I get to make music from an older point of view.” (Billboard)
