Nas Releasing Lost Tapes Volume 2
Nas has finally posted a message on his Twitter (@nas) that many of his fans have been waiting on for a long time.
"It's coming... LOST TAPES VOLUME TWO!!!" Nas posted on his page.
The Queens rapper will revisit the 2002 original Lost Tapes concept and will deliver a compilation of songs that didn’t make it to his albums over the past few years.
On Wednesday afternoon, MTV News got word from Nas' camp that The Lost Tapes: Vol. 2 will be released on December 14.
Nas told MTV that he is going to be giving the streets lots of music to hear over the next few months.
"I'm unloading records I want the streets to hear," the Queens rapper said in an email. "Cleaning out my hard drives. Gonna do this, then start fresh. I'm dropping my solo LP before the summer of 2011. I love the energy the world has been giving me over the last two years. But now it's time to focus on owning the streets again."
Nas and DJ Green Lantern released a project called the Last Real N---a Alive, Part 2 featuring vocals Nas recorded when he was making his last album, Untitled.
Nas has also been in the studio recording with the RZA, who commented on Nas’ legacy and his previous work with the Queens artist.
"Escobar is one of the best MCs to ever bless the mic," RZA said of Nas on the VMA white carpet on Sunday. "We're still trying to figure our schedule out. We both got a lot of big life ahead of us. But we're getting in. We're gonna make that classic. You know what it is. Last time, Nas did a verse for me that was on 'Verbal Intercourse.' That was a classic. To get back in and make another classic like that would be real good."
