Nas reveals the cover art for his new single “The Don.”

Nas has revealed the cover art for his new single “The Don,” premiering tonight on Funkmaster Flex’s show on Hot 97.

The single, assumed to be off his upcoming untitled album, comes in the wake of his previous street single “Nasty.” It is currently unclear when the LP will release.

Production duo Da Internz recently spoke on the album, likening it to It Was Written in terms of style and lyricism.

“This Nas album is not the Nas that is just like, This is cool. This is cute,” said Tuo. “This is the Nas like really, ‘I’m trying to tear the skin off your face.’ He’s not playing around. Nas is taking you back to the lyrics and concepts like It Was Written.”

 

The trio of emcees are reportedly joining forces for a project.

Back in 2007, Q-Tip and Common announced that they were forming the super group The Standard, though a full-length project is yet to come to light.

According to NYDN, Nas is reportedly set to join the group, though official plans are yet to be made for the group’s album. When asked if he plans to record with Q-Tip and Common, Nas responded, “Definitely,” fueling speculation that the duo could become a trio.

Q-Tip is also at work on his third official solo album, the follow up to 2008’s The Renaissance, while Nas is recording his next LP Life is Good.

 

Com Sense says his album with Nasir Jones will happen and explains its origins.

Common tapped Nas for his latest single “Ghetto Dreams,”but as previously reported, the duo has much more in store. Speaking with Hard Knock TV Com Sense reiterated that their collaborative LP is still in the works and that it originated as a mixtape titled Nas (Dot) Com.

“At some point, we will do that. We’d talked about it and we had a good idea to call it Nas (Dot) Com. That was actually going to be a mixtape at one point,” he revealed. “But we decided that we should make it an album. And we will. Nas is working on his album right now and my album is coming, November 22nd.”

He also spoke on his current standing with G.O.O.D. Music, explaining that although his upcoming album The Dreamer The Believerwon’t release on the label, he’s still part of the family.

“I’m still G.O.O.D Music affiliated, for sure. I’ll always be,” he said. “Me and ‘Ye, that’s my brother. I’m still part of the whole G.O.O.D. Music family. It’s not coming out through the G.O.O.D. Music label, but I’m still always associated. I’m still part of G.O.O.D. Music.”

Watch the full interview below, where he also speaks on working with No I.D., a potential Soulquarians album and more.

 

 

 

 

 

The Queens native explains that he wants to work with Scarface for his upcoming LP.

This past May, Nas said that the time had passed for Lost Tapes II, the sequel to his 2002 compilation of unreleased material.

But during a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the Queens, New York rapper said that he hasn’t entirely ruled out the potential release of the anticipated LP, and that it could be included as an “extra album.” “It’s still up in the air if I’m going to put out Lost Tapes II as an extra album,” he says. “Hopefully we can find a timeline but the first thing is Life Is Good.”

Though he remained mum on which collaborators would appear on his upcoming LP Life is Good, Nas did reveal that he’s recorded with Salaam Remi, Jay Electronica and AZ, and hopes to duet with Scarface. “There’s a certain sound in hip-hop that I love so some of the album may give you a Nineties feel,” he said.

More details on the previously announced collaboration between Frank Ocean and Nas have surfaced on the web. As Pitchfork points out, Hodgy Beats stated that he, Tyler, the Creator and Mr. Ocean are currently working on a song with the Queensbridge rapper.

The song is almost finished; we’re just waiting on a verse… I’m just stoked to be on a song with [Nas].”

In related news, Tyler has added another prominent name to his steadily increasing catalogue as he has recorded a song with Pusha-T, titled “Trouble on My Mind”. The official clip to the tune, directed by Jason Goldwatch, has already been completed. The song will appear on Pusha’s forthcoming solo EP. Stay tuned!

Esco reveals he’s inspired by Odd Future, Frank Ocean and Drake for his forthcoming LP.

Nas may not be putting out Lost Tapes 2, but promises to deliver with his forthcoming solo album. The Queens, New York rapper spoke with Billboard.com about progress to the follow-up to 2008’s Untitled, claiming that he’s in a new state of mind and is inspired by new cats in the game.

“The last record I did was, I was in a different place than I am now,” he said. “Now, I’m happy to express that different place and I’m just happy about music. I’m watching everyone do their thing, young guys, women, artists just doing they thing.”

Naming Odd Future, Lil Wayne, Drake and more as current influences, Nasty Nas said that his tenth solo LP doesn’t yet have a concept. “My new album that I’m working on is free flowing,” he said. “At this point, there’s not one concept that sums up the whole record. I’m just flowing. It’s really too early to tell who I’ll be collaborating with.”

He also acknowledged that Untitled wasn’t an entirely solid record, and that he’s learned from his mistakes. “I don’t want to look back on this record – because I can look back on my last record and I know that record, some songs didn’t belong there. I really overthought it. I don’t want it to be like that on this record,” he continued. “I want to be able to play this next record after it’s done and feel like I did it. I have to do something that’s new. It’s just in me. I have to do something that feels like it’s right right now, and it could last.”
