New York rapper Nas isn’t ready to hang up the microphone anytime soon. The hip-hop veteran has announced plans to put out a new solo album.
Last night during a chat with radio veteran Angie Martinez, Nasty Nas dished on his new content and collaborations he already has in the works.
“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)
In June, the hip-hop star shared a dope reunion pic of himself alongside rap icon Diddy.
Nas reunited with Diddy on their NASIR collaboration “Not For Radio” song.
Recently, Nas explained what it’s like working with NASIR executive producer Kanye West.
Working with Kanye is working with a young Quincy Jones. A musical genius.
