Hip-hop fans have been crying out for a new Nas album for years at this point, with his last release Life Is Good dropping back in 2012. However, in a new interview with Billboard, he confirms that a new album will finally be dropping at some point this year. He also talks about his Netflix show The Get Down, the WeWork and Mass Appeal partnership and more.
Check out an excerpt of the piece below:
Nas, I know you made a record called “Nas Album Done” but I guess the album isn’t finished yet?
It’s not done till it hits the streets.
But the studio in this office is going to help create the vibe.
Oh yeah, that room is where we’re finishing everything.
Can fans expect this album before the year is over?
Any titles in mind?
Not yet, not till release.
Will you drop tracks before the whole album comes out?
We might do a single but we might do something different.
