UPDATE: Nas Is Set to Release ‘The Lost Tapes 2’ Later This Month

While we still think that Jim Jones dropped the album of the summer; we’re definitely anticipating Nas’s upcoming release. The Lost Tapes 2 will be dropping on July 19, and features Queens’ most legendary MC spitting over tracks produced by RZA, Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, No I.D., The Alchemist, Kanye West, Pete Rock, Statik Selektah, Hit-Boy, and more. Preview a snippet above. This should definitely set the mid summer rooftop season off nicely.

UPDATE 07.13.19: Mass Appeal Records unveiled the first single from The Lost Tapes 2 yesterday. “Jarreau of Rap” features Al Jarreau and Keyon Harrold accompanying Nas on a genre-bending track that fuses hip hop and jazz. Check it out below.
