After an effective teaser last month, Nas is making his long-rumored The Lost Tapes 2 a reality with the unveiling of its release date and commercial.
According to Mass Appeal, the project compiles tracks from his albums Hip-Hop is Dead (2006), the album formerly known as Nigger (2008), Life is Good (2012), and his most recent disappointment, 2018’s Nasir.
To unveil the tracklist (which sports production from rap royalty such as Kanye West, Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, Hit-Boy, Pete Rock, No I.D., Alchemist, Statik Selektah and more), Nas is rolling out The lost Tapes 2 merch collaboration with Aimé Leon Dore.
The Lost Tapes 2 hits streaming services on July 19. Watch the compilation’s TV spot above.
