Nas Is Finishing the Album He Should Have Released Instead of 'NASIR'

Another Nas album (almost) done.

Remember the album Nas and Swizz Beatz made two years ago in less than a week and never released? Apparently, there’s another album from Nas in the works. 

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."

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.
