Nas fans who anxiously awaits “Lost Tapes 2” will be highly disappointed with this news.
In a recent interview with MTV, Nas admits he has given up on ever getting the compilation out.
“When I released Lost Tapes, it was on Sony,” explained Nas to MTV News. “Being at Sony for so long, I was used to things going easy. Kinda easy. At Def Jam, I just got there, I’m still in my ways at Sony. I’m like, ‘yeah, this record’ll come out this time, a few months later I’ma drop this.’ But we just started working together, so they’re like, ‘We can do this, but wait, maybe we should do it like this,’ and I wasn’t used to that. And then there was no communication at all, and I wasn’t used to that.”
“With Sony, I wasn’t used to a lot of communication, it was just, we understood what we were doing…Def Jam, it was more, ‘Let’s sit down, let’s have tea and talk this over.’ I wasn’t so used to that, and I saw kinda things falling behind. It kinda messed up my flow, I thought. The timing for that is gone.”
