Nas Co-Signs Kanye's New Album; Kanye To Work With Nas On New LP

In recent interview with Tim Westwood, rapper Nas spoke about his upcoming work with super producer Kanye West.

After reminiscing about his beef with Jay-Z, working with Damien Marley and his visit to England, Nas described his work ethic and his upcoming solo project.

“I am definitely looking at my solo project as one of the most important records of my life, you know what I mean?” Nas told Tim Westwood.  “I’m happy to be here, I love the state of the game.”

According to Nas, the new album will feature production from Kanye West, who contacted the Queens-rapper about working on the new record.

“Its going to be magic. I feel a magic thing happening and brewing.  I keep calling it a magic moment, that’s what it’s going to be.  I feel it, the stuff I’m writing down,” Nas continued.

In fact Nas revealed that he was really inspired when Toronto rapper Drake, the RZA and Kanye reached out to him for his upcoming project.

“Kanye West hit me up and said ‘I want to do the album,’ and the RZA,” Nas revealed. “I heard Kanye’s album and its crazy. The new album is crazy. So I was just listening to Drake’s stuff and I was inspired by Drake shouting me out on the album.  I have been inspired by his mind state for the album and he says my whole name.  “Nasir Jones thank you.’ Kanye’s like man… Those dudes really inspire me to go in there and really do what I am supposed to do at this day and age in the game and to deliver.”
