The anticipation for LOST TAPES 2 continues to build as Nas unveils more new content ahead of the album’s release. The New York rapper took to social media to share another trailer for his forthcoming project as well as tour moments with Mary J Blidge. The two recently embarked on their Royalty tour which is set to last until mid-September.
Nas’ latest album, Nasir, only released a year ago but the Hip-Hop legend is steadily pushing to release more content. The Lost Tapes released nearly 17 years ago following the commercial success of Nas’ release of Stillmatic. Just like the last, LOST TAPES 2 will feature unreleased material recorded during the sessions of his previous releases. Nas revealed that this project will actually contain music from his last four releases, which dates back to 2008’s Untitled.
LOST TAPES 2 boasts contributions from RZA, Kanye West, Hit-Boy, All Jarreau, and many more. The 16-track offering also includes Nas’ most recent pre-release single, “Jarreau of Rap.” A few days removed off the project’s release, Nas had a listening party where he noted that he had “enough material for Last Tapes 4.”
