Nas' biographical Lost Tapes 2 is not happening!
Nas fans anxiously awaiting Lost Tapes 2 may be disappointed, as it appears that the compilation sequel will not see the light of day.
"When I released Lost Tapes, it was on Sony," explained Nas to MTV News. "Being at Sony for so long, I was used to things going easy. Kinda easy. At Def Jam, I just got there, I'm still in my ways at Sony. I'm like, 'yeah, this record'll come out this time, a few months later I'ma drop this.' But we just started working together, so they're like, 'We can do this, but wait, maybe we should do it like this,' and I wasn't used to that. And then there was no communication at all, and I wasn't used to that."
Nas continued the comparison between labels. "With Sony, I wasn't used to a lot of communication, it was just, we understood what we were doing...Def Jam, it was more, 'Let's sit down, let's have tea and talk this over.' I wasn't so used to that, and I saw kinda things falling behind. It kinda messed up my flow, I thought. The timing for that is gone."
"Now, it's all about the new record," explained Nasty Nas, who added that he wasn't entirely satisfied with his last album, Untitled. "I could pick a song, or two, or three, that I coulda did without. And there were songs that I left off that I shoulda put on. We all go through that."
I love how you can just hear the regret in Nas' voice reading him talk about Sony and Def Jam, lol.
Jay wins again. Got Nas to sign a regretful deal over at Def Jam and then jumped ship himself, lol.
But in all seriousness, I'm not surprised. When Nas was having the problems there last year it just seemed that Def Jam was not interested in releasing the project. They probably only got Nas under contract for another album or two and does not want those contract fulfilling albums to be "B" albums.
Hopefully, and thats if Nas owns those Lost Tapes 2 masters (which he probably doesn't because he is Nas), he can release it in the future when he is off Def Jam.
How many L's does it take to prove to these stans that Nas is NOT a smart emcee?
LMAO. Not Bossy
