Nas Begins Work on New Album

Life is still good for Nas. Following the critical and commercial success of his 2012 album Life Is Good, the iconic MC is already plotting his next move.

During his visit to Angie Martinez’s radio show on Hot 97, he revealed that he is back in the lab readying the follow-up to Life Is Good.

He has begun preliminary work by taking down notes in his iPhone. “I got some good stuff. I’m in the zone right now and I feel real good about where I’m at, so I gotta take advantage of it,” said Nas, who was recently named greatest lyricist of all time by CNN.

Not only is he in a good space professionally, he has also found peace in his personal life.

After a nasty divorce from ex-wife Kelis, the two have rekindled their friendship. “We’re back together as friends. We were not the best of friends for a long time,” said Nas, who shares a son with the “Bossy” singer. “We’re friends and I’m glad to be at that place. I don’t want no beef.”

Nas plans to attend the Grammys next month, where he is nominated for four awards including Best Rap Album.
