Nas Drops Jewels On ‘ The Lost Tapes 2’ Album

When your debut album is as profound as Illmatic was, it is hard to top that no matter what you do next. It is subjective for us to debate which Nas album is the best, but one thing for sure is that Nas will always drop wisdom and keen storytelling on his albums.

The Lost Tapes 2, features unreleased tracks from Nas’ last four studio albums: Hip Hop Is Dead (2006), Untitled (2008), Life Is Good (2012) and Nasir (2018). RZA, Swizz Beatz, Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Pete Rock, No I.D., and The Alchemist are just some of the hip hop greats that lent their hands-on production.

Nas is a legend in the Hip-Hop game and has surely amassed a lot of knowledge in his years, which he shares with listeners on this project. Tracks like “Tanasaia” produced by the RZA, Nas’ says “Every man originated in Asia, one continent Africa was apart of Asia”, is just one of many bars on the project that make you stop and think. On “Queensbridge Politics”, produced by Pete Rock, Nas takes us on a hip hop history lesson through NYC’s famed Queensbridge projects who produced some of Hip Hops greatest emcees.

The Lost Tapes 2 is a mixed bag of Nas flows which stems from him choosing unreleased tracks from his previous studio albums, nonetheless, Nas’ remains elite lyrically. Check out the album for yourself below.
