The last time fans got a new album from Nas (Life Is Good, in 2012), President Obama was wrapping up his first term as the leader of the free world, Michael Phelps was setting the record for Olympic medals, and Bane was dropping some of the GOAT rap quotables in The Dark Knight Rises. His hiatus is seemingly coming to an end, however, as towards the end of a recent show he announced that he will release his twelfth studio LP during the hotter months of the year.
Thanks to the wonder that is social media, his words were captured for the world to witness:
Now, I’m as big a Nas fan as anyone, but I’ve long learned that whenever he (or rappers in general) gives out updates on his albums I take everything with a grain of salt. Still, it would be nice to get some new music from him, especially after his latest drop – “God It,” with De La Soul – a few days ago. We shall see, however.
