Emptying the files
Nas Nas

NasDespite including only “discarded” tracks—songs recorded for “I Am...” (Columbia, 1999) and “Stillmatic” (Sony, 2002) which for some reason were left off—the first volume of Queensbridge-born Nas “The Lost Tapes” is among his fans’ favourite references, partly because songs like “Doo Rags”, “No Idea's Original” and “Poppa Was a Playa” have aesthetically more to do with the “Illmatic” (Columbia, 1994) times than what the New Yorker rapper has been doing since the beginning of the new century, which have also been difficult years for him on a personal level. The fondness many have for those “lost songs” explains the excitement with which the announcement of new instalments in the series has been received. So far, Nas has confirmed there’ll be a second volume simply entitled “Lost Tapes Volume 2”, to be released on 14th December. In a statement to MTV, Nas has declared he’d like to empty his files as a means of renewing his energies for future releases. “I’m unloading records I want the streets to hear. Cleaning out my hard drives. Gonna do this, then start fresh. I’m dropping my solo LP before the summer of 2011. I love the energy the world has been giving me over the last two years. But now it’s time to focus on owning the streets again.”
