During an iHeartRadio Q&A, as reported by Complex, Nas revealed that he has more music on the way in the not too distant future.
"It's another album that I already had been working on before [NASIR]," he said. "Since I did this, I gotta do something that, you know, goes in another direction a little bit. So I'm finishing up the next one… It's not gonna be that long [of a wait] because half of it was already there, yeah. I did do something with Swizz, I did stuff with RZA."
5 New Albums You Need to Hear This Week on Audiomack
CDQ, Demarco, Bktherula, Lavida Loca, and 5an have albums you need this week on Audiomack.
Could there be a full collaborative album with Nas on the mic and RZA behind the boards? Maybe so. Will this follow-up to NASIR include a response to the allegations of abuse ex-wife Kelis brought forward earlier this year? Hopefully.
One thing remains certain, though, with the low bar set by NASIR, this next record will likely be a marked improvement for the living legend.
As of July 27, there is currently no release date for another Nas full-length album, according to his label, Def Jam.
