In a recent interview with the UK’s Benji B, Nas recently revealed that he was down to do a whole joint album with the elusive Roc Nation artist, Jay Electronica. But could those plans still be in the works?
We got a taste of what Nas and Jay Elect could do together on “Queens Get That Money,” the opening track for Nas’ 2008 album, Untitled, or better known as the controversial N-word album. Check out what Nas said about the missed collabo opportunity below:
“I wanted to get him to do the entire Untitled album, the N-word album,” revealed Nas. “He had ideas, he was pulling records from J Dilla, he was pulling records. He was there with me while I was working on it. He did the first record on there. It would have been so ahead of its time because no one at that time… He wasn’t signed, he wasn’t out there like that. So it would have been great right now to go back and say, ‘Yo, this dude produced my whole album years ago.’ That would have been cool. He’s ahead of his time like that.”
So what about in the future, could a joint album between Nas and Jay Elect ever see the light of day? Check out what Nas said about that below:
“Now everyone knows who he is now and some of the mystique would be gone if he did that,” answered Nas. “But who knows how it would come out. Probably would be crazy still.”
Well considering that we’ve been waiting for Jay Electronica to drop some new music for some time now, Nas better not hold his breath! How do you think a Jay Elect and Nas joint album would sound? To refresh your memory of what they can do together, check out that “Queens Get That Money” below:
