Besides a release date and Hit-Boy earning an EP credit, very few details about Nas’s next body of work have been confirmed. It is not even clear at this point if the project is an LP or an EP.
Both men have a history of creating joint efforts with other musicians. Nas was part of The Firm supergroup in 1997, and the Queens emcee made Distant Relatives with Damian Marley.
Hit-Boy and Dom Kennedy released the collaborative project, Courtesy of Half-A-Mil, in 2017. He also teamed with SOB X RBE for 2019’s Family Not a Group.
