New York rapper Nas doesn’t want fans cooped up during these hot days. The hip-hop veteran took a moment away from music-making to encourage fans to soak in some summer vibes.

Last night, Nasir Jones went to Instagram with a fresh shot of himself at a beach.

Last week, God’s Son 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)

In June, the hip-hop star shared a dope reunion pic of himself alongside rap icon Diddy.
