Nas Delivers "The Lost Tapes II"

Seventeen years after the original, the inimitable Nas has returned with his latest album, "The Lost Tapes II" a compilation of tracks rescued from the cutting room floor.

Comprised of 16 cuts, the project pulls from leftovers originally intended to be included on albums such as 2006's "Hip-Hop is Dead," 2012's "Life is Good" and last year's "Nasir." 

Production comes courtesy of Kanye West, Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, Hit-Boy, Pete Rock, No I.D., Alchemist, Statik Selektah and more. 

The project is currently available on all streaming platforms.
