Not long after celebrating the 21st anniversary of Illmatic, Nas will be dropping off a new album this year. XXL has reported that the Queensbridge rapper made the announcement after closing out a show in Orlando, FL. A lucky fan caught Nasir right as he revealed the news. ”Right mothafunkin’ now, death to all snitches. Watch every nigga around you my niggas ‘cuz sh*t is real out here. 2015, new album this summer,” exclaimed Nas.
There’s no confirmation on a title or exact release date just yet, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated on all that. Nas’ 12th studio album will act as the follow-up to Life Is Good, which dropped back in 2012. Since then, Nas has been busy with his documentary Time Is Illmatic and serving as the face of Hennessy. Towards the end of last year, Nas released “The Season” produced by J. Dilla and also lent some verses to Madonna for her next album.
