The Hip Hop world has been buzzing since the word got out that Nas was dropping a new project. Well, the time has finally come. The Queens rapper’s new album “The Lost Tapes 2” is now upon us.
As you may have gathered from the title, this is a compilation album, containing unreleased tracks from as far back as 2006. It features production from Swizz Beatz, RZA, Kanye West, Pete Rock, Pharrell Williams, No I.D., The Alchemist and others. Artists featured on the project are less known, except for Swizz Beatz.
This definitely has the feel of a compilation as the tracks are very different, but have the common theme of Nas’ outstanding lyricism.
