Fall is usually when big artists begin to drop new projects. While we have releases from Big K.R.I.T., Eminem, and Rick Ross, artists like Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, and Frank Ocean have all promised new albums soon, but seem to be failing to follow through after months of teasing. But thankfully, we have one release to look forward to: Nas.
Arguably one of the best rappers of all time, Nas just celebrated the 20th anniversary of his standout debut album Illmatic by releasing a remastered version of the album and a documentary. Nas also jumped on the remix of Schoolboy Q's "Studio", and rapped that he has "Finished up my new album, single 'bout to be dropping". And yesterday, Nas followed through on this lyric. After showcasing his new single with a private audience at the Run The Jewels show, Nas officially released his first single, entitled "The Season". The new track is produced by the late-and-great J Dilla, and these two hip hop gods on the same record leaves fan wanting more. It looks like Nas Season is upon us.
