Nas has teamed up with DJ Khaled up to drop perhaps not the most cryptic of clues that the Queensbride rapper is poised to release his 11th studio album. Taken from Khaled’s recently released Major Key, Nas Album Done features a guest appearance from the man himself along with a sample of The Fugees’ Fu-Gee-La.
While the exact date and name of the next album in Nas’ career spanning two decades have yet to be confirmed, the track with Khaled may offer an insight to a new musical direction to come. For fans still clinging on to hope that Nas will evoke the same kind of poetic prowess he showed on Illmatic, it may be time to look away as this latest collaboration is borderline full blown trap. Taking a more hardened tone than normal, Nas looks to assert himself a force to be reckoned with in the rap game once more while laying it down Khaled’s wash of bass. You can listen to the new track Nas Album Done below.
Nas will be peforming live this summer at Reading & Leeds Festival.
