Last month Nas perked the ears of Hip-Hop fans when he revealed The Lost Tapes 2 was indeed happening. Today, he announced the new album will drop on July 19.
The album is the sequel to the 2002 heralded album The Lost Tapes and will source songs from projects that didn’t make albums that came before it. For the second edition of the album, songs will be pulled from the production of Hip-Hop Is Dead (2006), Untitled (2008), Life is Good (2012), and Nasir (2018).
