Wait, There’s More

In a recent interview, Jones delivered the ultimate teaser. In addition to revealing he’s working on records with producer Hit-Boy, Nas also said he had a secret project brewing.

Now during a chat with radio host and DJ Ralph McDaniels, Nasir dropped the news that he’s working on a couple of projects. The first one is with Hit-Boy. “Hit-Boy, that’s been fun working with him. He played a snippet in the battle the other day.. of something. We got some things,” Nas said, referring to the new song from the rapper that Hit debuted during his IG battle with Boi-1da. During the Universal Hip Hop Museum and Mass Appeal’s Hip Hop Loves NY benefit event, Nas also said that he’s got another project that he didn’t want to disclose at this point. (HHNM)
