The big question… could Nas long-delayed “Slave to a Page: The Book of Rhymes” finally see a release? Lets hope so.

Perhaps in light of the recent success of Jay-Z’s Decoded and Eminem’s The Way I Am, it appears that Nas’ own lyrics book, Slave to a Page: The Book of Rhymes has finally been greenlighted for release.

The book, which some sources indicate has been in the works since 2003, will contain a collection of lyrics, photos and personal stories from the rapper. The title borrows from the hook of popular Nas single, “Made You Look.”

Amazon.com indicates that the release date for the book is April 30, 2011.

Nas’ camp has yet to confirm whether the release is official.

Nas is currently touring with Damian Marley to promote their successful collaborative album “Distant Relatives.”
