Nas is currently working on the follow up to his sixth studio album “Life Is Good.”
Speaking with The Huffington Post, the rap icon says his next album will mark a new chapter for him.
“It’s the next chapter in myself as a writer,” Nas said. “I’m really excited about every new leaf I turn. Every new endeavor. I’m excited about that and all the potential that comes with everything new that I do. And all my ideas can come to fruition. And that excites me, because there’s no limits to what I can do, in terms of trying to be an inspiration. I just want to do well for the listeners out there. Do well for the whole genre. So I’m excited.”
Nas also opened up about his new single “Sinatra In The Sands” featuring Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z.
“Those are the guys who lasted the test of time, and those guys are at the top of their game,” Nas said. “They’re just company to be in. So that’s the whole vibe of that. And of course the title says it all. So that’s what this song is really about. Striving to be the best you, like Sinatra had become.”
Nas also opened up about working with Mariah Carey and Jermaine Dupri on her upcoming album.
The New York lyricist is also the brand ambassador for Hennessy’s “Wild Rabbit” campaign.
