Sean also shared a photo of them together in the studio. It’s unclear if they have a collaboration in the works.
Nas hasn’t released a new studio album since the Kanye West-produced Nasir in 2018. Last year, he released The Lost Tapes 2 featuring unreleased tracks from his last four albums. He recently teamed up with Lil Nas X on the remix to “Rodeo.”
During a 2018 interview with Angie Martinez, Nas revealed that he had been in the studio with Swizz Beatz and RZA. “It’s another album that I already had been working on before [Nasir],” he said. “Since I did this, I gotta do something that, you know, goes in another direction a little bit. So I’m finishing up the next one.”
Sean is about to drop his own album, possibly titled Detroit II. The long-awaited project, which follows 2017’s I Decided, is expected to include collaborations with Post Malone, A$AP Rocky, and Meek Mill. “I just been returning to my roots. I’ve just been getting back to having fun with it,” he told Beats 1.
