Nas is preparing  for a special release to mark his final year at Def Jam records after a three year hiatus at the major label. During a recent interview at HipHopDX, Nas brought up ‘Lost Tapes 2’ his upcoming compilation which is a sequel of his revered 2002 compilation of unreleased tracks.

“Finished up my new album/ Single about to be dropping/ Last album on Def Jam and I got so many options,” the rapper spits on the remix to ScHoolboy Q’s ‘Studio’. This comes after his 2012 record ‘Life Is Good’ which was widely reported to be his last album. The album will be released through Mass Appeal, Nas’s recently launched record label that is also home to Boldy James, Bishop Nehru and Fashawn.

The original Lost Tapes was mostly comprised of songs recorded during sessions for I Am… and Nastradamus, Nas’ third and fourth album releases.
