Nas Taps Hit-Boy to Executive Produce His Upcoming Album
by Staff Editor
Ahead of his album release, rap star Nas has revealed news that he is collaborating with Inland Empire producer Hit-Boy to deliver an all-new collection of music to their fans and listener’s. Due out Aug. 21 via Mass Appeal Records, Nas’ forthcoming album, which has yet to have its title revealed, will combine the rap icon’s classic style with Hit-Boy’s top-notch productions. Prior to their forthcoming release, the two worked together on the track “Royalty” from “The Lost Tapes 2.”
The release of Nas’ forthcoming untitled project follows his previous projects “Nasir” and “The Lost Tapes 2.” Admittedly, Nas blames Big Sean for getting him back in the studio to record a new album after the Detroit rapper blasted Nas from the studio on IG Live. Hit-Boy has produced some of hip-hop’s hottest tracks, such as “Bezerk” by Big Sean and A$AP Ferg and “Racks in the Middle” by Nipsey Hussle and Roddy Ricch.
