Nas announces that he’s currently cooking on something new for fans.
While he was talking with DJ Ralph McDaniels during the Universal Hip Hop Museum and Mass Appeal’s Hip-Hop Loves NY benefit event on Friday (April 24), the Queens rapper made it known that he is working on a project with Hit-Boy.
“Yeah, yeah,” Nas started, following the question whether he has new music lined up. “It’s some projects going on. One of them—I was working with Hit-Boy and I still am. And then there’s another, there’s another, the one I’m working on that I don’t wanna disclose. But, Hit-Boy, that’s been fun working with him. He played a snippet in the battles the other day…of something. We got some things.”
Nas most recent release was his 2018 effort, entitled Nasir, which was produced by Kanye West. In 2017, Escobar hinted that the album would drop in the summer of 2017. “Two weeks,” he said during an interview with The New York Times. “I always say I’m two weeks away from finishing.”
However, Nasir came through shortly after Nas inked a distribution deal for his label Mass Appeal Records with Universal Music Group. The project was among a line up of G.O.O.D. Music releases, all of which contained seven tracks each. Nas celebrated Nasir album with a listening event under the Queensboro Bridge in New York City on June 14, 2018. The album features appearances from Diddy, The-Dream and more.
Nas formerly disclosed that he finalized his 11th album on DJ Khaled’s Major Key, which touched down back in 2016.
