Big Sean put Nas in an awkward situation when he blurted out the Illmatic mastermind has imminent plans for a follow-up to NASIR.
In a video clip making the rounds online, Sean begins filming the Hip Hop legend and says, “By the way, Nas dropping an album. Hey, I’m putting Nas on blast right now. You finna drop?”
Nas replies, “Something like that! Something like that!”
The two then explode with laughter.
NASIR arrived in 2018 to mixed reviews. Many felt Kanye West’s rush job hindered Nas’ brilliance and stunted its potential. Nas confirmed a follow-up to the project was on its way in July 2018 while chatting with radio host Angie Martinez.
“[There’s] another album,” he said. “I had already been working on it before I started with Kanye … half of it was already there. I did do something with Swizz [Beatz], and some stuff with RZA.”
If Sean is right, Nas fans will find out soon enough.
