(AllHipHop News) Nas is set to re-release his classic debut album as Illmatic XX next Tuesday, but the Queens legend is also back in the lab working on another studio album. This is according to New York based producer Reefa who says he has worked with Esco on some tracks.
“Nas is working on his album,” says Reefa in an exclusive interview with AllHipHop.com. “I don’t know too much about it. I just know for a fact that we’ve been collaborating.”
Reefa previously produced Rick Ross’ “What A Shame” off Mastermind and The Game’s “It’s Okay (One Blood)” from Doctor’s Advocate. The head of the ATM production house is also working with Fabolous and Sean “Diddy” Combs on their respective forthcoming projects Loso’s Way 2: Rise To Power and MMM.
“I can’t really talk about that much, but I can tell you it’s going to be a movie,” says Reefa about Diddy’s next album. “It’s going to be fire. You’re going to expect, hopefully, something that can change the whole Hip Hop sound.”
MMM will be Diddy’s first studio project since Last Train to Paris in 2010. The next LP from Nas will be the follow-up to 2012’s Grammy nominated Life Is Good.
