Nas Explains Why He Hasn't Released A New Album

It's Been Too Long!

October 13, 2016

In my humble opinion (I'm from New York - I might be biased), Nas is one of the most underrated rappers of all time.  He's always done a fantastic job of releasing balanced albums.  He has street records, he has mainstream records, club records, he has diss records and he even has records that could pass more as poetry than music.  As long as he's releasing albums, hip hop will be okay.  Unfortunately for fans, he hasn't dropped a new one in almost five years.  He explained why during his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
