New York rapper Nas is starting to make it feel like it’s Escobar Season all over again. The hip-hop veteran has come forward to finally deliver the announcement fans have waited for – new music is dropping soon.
Nas and Hit-Boy’s New Music
On Monday, Nasir and producer Hit-Boy both went to their social media pages to make the massive announcement. Barring any setbacks, fans can look forward to their studio flames to arrive in mid-August.

The news even inspired DJ Khaled to repost Nas’ announcement to his IG page.
Khaled previously linked up with Nasir Jones for their “Nas Album Done” song.
Wait, There’s More
In an April 2020 interview, Jones delivered the ultimate teaser. In addition to revealing he’s working on records with Hit-Boy, Nas also said he had a secret project brewing.
Now during a chat with radio host and DJ Ralph McDaniels, Nasir dropped the news that he’s working on a couple of projects. The first one is with Hit-Boy. “Hit-Boy, that’s been fun working with him. He played a snippet in the battle the other day.. of something. We got some things,” Nas said, referring to the new song from the rapper that Hit debuted during his IG battle with Boi-1da. During the Universal Hip Hop Museum and Mass Appeal’s Hip Hop Loves NY benefit event, Nas also said that he’s got another project that he didn’t want to disclose at this point. (HHNM)
