Nas Plots Ravenous Return with New Album

Da Internz have crafted hits for Big Sean and Rihanna, and now they’re lending their hitmaking skills to a hip-hop legend. Producers Marcos “Kosine On Da Beat” Palacios and Ernest “Tuo” Clark have been working with Nas on his upcoming 10th album and shared some insight into the recording sessions.

“Nas is so cool, he’s so down-to-earth, and he’s so about allowing us to do our job as producers and let us put our vision on it,” Kosine told Rap-Up TV. “It’s been a dream come true.”

The “Nasty” MC is sounding hungry on his new material. “This Nas album is not the Nas that is just like, This is cool. This is cute,” explained Tuo. “This is the Nas like really, ‘I’m trying to tear the skin off your face.’ He’s not playing around. Nas is taking you back to the lyrics and concepts like It Was Written.”
