New York rapper Nas is going down memory lane. The hip-hop veteran hit up social media this week to reflect on the meaning behind his 2002 album The Lost Tapes.

Nasir Jones hit up Instagram Tuesday to speak up on the impact the LP had on rap culture and dished on a few of his fave songs.

Over the summer, NBA superstar LeBron James turned up to Nas’ The Lost Tapes 2 album.

Nas’ recently released The Lost Tapes 2 is jam-packed with major production.

Nas released his The Lost Tapes 2 album this week via Mass Appeal/Def Jam featuring songs that did not make the cut on his past few LPs. It features production from RZA, Pharrell, Kanye West, Swizz Beatz, No I.D., Pete Rock, Hit-Boy and more. The New York legend’s album is on pace to do 17-20k copies (5-7k pure sales) which is much lower than we anticipated. (Hip Hop-N-More)
