Nas revealed he has a lot of new music lined up, including a project with Hit-Boy.

On the occasion of the Universal Hip Hop Museum and Mass Appeal’s Hip-Hop Loves NY benefit event on Friday, the Queens native spoke with DJ Ralph McDaniels. When asked if he’s got anything in the works he responded, “It’s some projects going on. One of them—I was working with Hit-Boy and I still am.”

Referring to Hit-Boy squaring off with Boi-1da last month in a battle titled, “The Beat Battle You Don’t Want To Miss,” Nas revealed, “Hit-Boy, that’s been fun working with him. He played a snippet in the battles the other day…of something. We got some things.”

Nas also hinted at a second project he’s working on that he doesn’t want to “disclose.”

Nas’ most recent release was his 2018 album, NASIR, which was produced by Kanye West.
