Following Pusha-T, Kanye West, and Kids See Ghosts, Nas is next in line to release his album.
Ahead of its Friday arrival, Kanye has tweeted the tracklisting for the hip-hop legend’s long-awaited 12th studio album. The 7-track set, for which the titles are scrawled on a whiteboard, opens with “Everything” and includes songs like “Bonjour,” “Not for Radio,” “Adam and Eve,” and “Cops,” closing with “I Can Explain.”
During an interview with Angie Martinez last month, Pusha-T opened up about Nas’ first album in six years, which was executive produced by Kanye.
“Nas sounds like 2028 Nas,” said the G.O.O.D. Music president. “With Nas particularly, ‘Ye is such a fan that he can pull all the greatest moments in seven songs, and update that energy. He knows how to harness that energy, update that energy beat-wise, and Nas just gets to be him.”
Just like Daytona, ye, and Kids See Ghosts, Nas’ album was recorded in Wyoming. “I feel like im 18 year old again when I make beats for Nas,” Kanye tweeted.
The album marks the follow-up to 2012’s Life Is Good, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 149,000 copies in its first week.
