Nas Talks New Album, Raising Children
Nas gives a few details about his upcoming tenth LP and the benefits of being a parent.
Although fans may be bummed that Nas's Lost Tapes 2 won't be seeing the light of day anytime soon, the QB emcee is making it up to his fans with his impending tenth solo LP. Now, The Boombox has caught up with Nas to discuss his upcoming project. Although he had few details to give about the release, he did reveal that he is looking to reunite with frequent collaborator Salaam Remi on the album.
"I'm working on a solo album," he said. "I'm very excited about that. [I don't have a title] to share with the people yet. The producer list on the record is probably gonna be people I worked with in the past like Salaam Remi and some new producers as well...There's nothing that gives me the charge that I get making music. I do a lot of other things on the low, but I'm mostly proud of the music. "
Nas also discussed the joys of parenthood. He said that he loves being able to discuss Hip Hop with his older daughter, and that he's excited to see his youngest son beginning to walk and talk now.
"My kids are my everything," he said. "I got the best kids in the whole world. My daughter is at the age where she can call me up and tell me what she thinks about Beyonce's new video and what she thinks about Wiz Khalifa and we can talk about it all. My son is walking and talking and he's no joke. I got the best kids in the world. I walk around everyday very blessed."
