Tomorrow (July 19) marks the return of the sequel to Nas' 2002 album The Lost Tapes.
Earlier this week he hosted a listening party at the Mass Appeal Records office in New York City, sharing his new music that now comes 17 years after the original. The new album features a wapping 16 tracks with features and produced sounds from Pharrell Williams, Swizz Beatz, Al Jarreau, RZA, Kanye West, RaVaughn and more.
And if one new album isn't enough for you, get ready for two more! While speaking at his listening party, Nas announced he had enough material to create Lost Tapes 3 & 4.
"So, I've got enough for a Lost Tapes 2 now, and a Lost Tapes 3 and a Lost Tapes 4." -Nas
The rapper even assures his audience that the next few albums won't take as long to be released, stating: "The next one won't be seventeen years, each one sounds different than the last one."
In celebration of Nas' album release, Def Jam, Mass Appeal and Nas have created a scavenger hunt in NYC. Beginning yesterday, they were hiding cassettes of the new album Lost Tapes 2 around the city for fans to find.
The hunt continued today, with Mass Appeal and Def Jam posting pictures of locations and hints as to where a fan could find a tape that would give them access to a private release party for tomorrow night!
We are all excited for the album to drop tomorrow! If you haven't seen it yet, check out the tracklist below:
