Nas fans have waited 17 years for the sequel to The Lost Tapes, and there may be even more unreleased music on the way.
During a listening session for The Lost Tapes 2 in New York City on Tuesday night (July 16), the Queensbridge icon revealed that he has enough material to continue the series.
“As you can imagine, I’ve piled up a lot of songs since then,” he told the crowd (via Billboard). “So I got enough for a Lost Tapes 2 now. And a Lost Tapes 3 and a Lost Tapes 4.”
But first, The Lost Tapes 2 arrives Friday. The long-awaited sequel to 2002’s cult classic features unreleased tracks from Nas’ last four albums including Hip-Hop Is Dead (2006), Untitled (2008), Life Is Good (2012), and Nasir (2018).
In addition to the previously-released “Jarreau of Rap (Skatt Attack),” the album includes production from Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, RZA, No I.D., Hit-Boy, Pete Rock, and Kanye West, who helmed “You Mean the World to Me” for Nasir.
