Nas has let the cat out of the bag regarding a special project with Hit-Boy. 

During a conversation with DJ and VJ Ralph McDaniels earlier this week, the Queens rapper revealed that he has new music on the way. “There’s some projects going on. One of them—I was working with Hit-Boy and I still am,” Nas explained. “Hit-Boy, that’s been fun working with him. He played a snippet in the battles the other day of something. We got some things.” He also added that there is a second project in the works that he doesn’t want to disclose too much information about at the moment.

This isn’t the first time that Nas has teased his fans. Back in 2018, Nas hinted at a follow-up to NASIR, which marked the rapper’s 12th studio album. “It’s another album that I already had been working on before [NASIR],” Nas said during an iHeartRadio interview with Angie Martinez. “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. I did do something with Swizz [Beatz], I did stuff with RZA. I’m a big Wu-Tang fan. RZA’s real.”

Following the release of NASIR in June 2018, Nas released The Lost Tapes 2 compilation album one year later. While appearing on Trevor Noah’s “The Daily Show,” the 46-year-old spitter confessed that he was conflicted about delivering his music to the world.

“I really didn’t know what to do with these songs because they weren’t really the songs that I wanted to put on a record. They were just sitting there and I always thought I’d come back to them and finish them up later, but it never happened. So, I’m sitting here with all these songs starting to pile up and I’m like, ‘Oh, I did a Lost Tapes album 17 years ago, I think it’s time for another one.’”

Are you looking forward to new music from Nas?
