On April 22nd Kanye let us know all the tea! Via twitter Kanye states that he will be producing a few albums with Pusha T, Teyana Taylor, his own album, along with his joint album with Kid Cudi, and oh yeah… Nas. Nas’ new album will be set to release on June 15th.
According to XXL Magazine, Nas last told Billboard his new album would come back in 2017 to follow up his single ‘Nas Album Done’ featuring DJ Khaled. Unfortunately, that song wasn’t all true about the project’s status. “It’s not done until it hits the streets.” Nas has been dropping singles and made a few appearances on other artists songs, but its been almost six years since we’ve gotten a solo album from him. His last album Life is Good debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and won the Impact Track award at the Bet Hip Hop Awards back in 2012. His last album reflected his personal life and ventilation of his feelings while featuring old school sounds.
With Kanye assisting in the production of this new album and Nas’ lyricism and flow, this album should feature no disappointments. We all know Nas as one to stay true to himself and never switch his style regardless of what everybody else has going on. Nas is in a lane of his own.
