Nas's The Lost Tapes 2 drops Friday, 17 years after the original, which is considered by many to be his second-best project after Illmatic.
He had a private listening party for the sequel over the weekend and during the fun he announced that he has enough material for at least two more Lost Tapes.
“I put out the first Lost Tapes 17 years ago,” he explained. “Since then, I piled up a lot of songs. I’ve got enough for a Lost Tapes 2 now — and a Lost Tapes 3 and a Lost Tapes 4. The next one won’t be 17 years. Each one sounds different.”
The Lost Tapes 2 will be made up from leftover material from Nas's Hip-Hop Is Dead, Untitled, and Life Is Good sessions.
