Nas Plans To Release "Lost Tapes" Sequels
« on: June 01, 2010, 05:29:51 PM »
Nas may have just released his collaborative album with Damian 'Jr. Gong' Marley, but he's already thinking about moving on to the next one. In an interview with Bootleg Kev on KVegas' Hot 97.5, Nas explained that he's got enough unreleased material lying around to release two sequels to his classic 'The Lost Tapes,' a compilation of leftover songs released in 2002.

'I do got a lot of songs that really didn't make no album, that are just sitting around, that got lost,' he said. 'So I got enough actually for a Lost Tapes 2 and 3 by now. So I just got to set it up, put them together, 12 songs for one album, 12 songs for another and figure it out. That's all it takes. I hope you see a Lost Tapes 2 and 3.'

The sequels would be the fourth and fifth compilation albums to be added to his discography, preceded by '02's 'From Illmatic to Stillmatic: The Remixes,' 'The Lost Tapes' and '07's 'Greatest Hits.' The original 'Lost Tapes' included tracks recorded during his sessions for 'I Am...' and 'Stillmatic,' boasting production from the Alchemist, Rockwilder, Kanye West and Trackmasters.

Nas recently released 'Distant Relatives', his first full-length outing recorded exclusively with another artist. The album, which debuted at number five on the Billboard 200, moved 57,000 copies in its first week and has already spawned the singles 'As We Enter' and 'Strong Will Continue'. The pair is currently wrapping up their Stateside tour before heading overseas for a European leg in July.

some of the best nas material ever is on the lost tapes so a follow up of further unreleased tracks could be very good indeed.

Hopefully this actually surfaces.  The Lost Tapes 2 was suppose to come out years ago.

And this could be a fantastic album, as good as The Lost Tapes, he has plenty of VERY GOOD songs that can be thrown together to make an excellent album.
 

Action!

I basically think artist today should sell their recording sessions via digital outlets and then sell a collection of the best tracks or the concept as a physical product.
Cool breeze; I'm hopping out of new Beams
My outfit ran me a few G's but none of that will matter if you leave
I used to be an Adam with two Eves and shawtys automatically do me
Excuse me, all that happened before you doesn't matter
I'm a vision of the future climbing the success ladder
Recline, in the mean time, twenty three shine, diamond bling blind as I rewind

Judging by his last 2 albums, I hope we don't get a Lost Tapes from them sessions. Both albums were pretty weak for me.

Nas needs to sprinkle in some of those unreleased Illmatic and It Was Written session tracks, that's what's most in demand.  And newer fire like the Khalil-produced "What It Is"

just because a song gets scrapped, doesn't mean it's worse than the released cuts

Often times the scrapped songs are better then whats on the album.

There was absolutely nothing said by Nas here that indicates he's actually working on putting something like that. He just said he has enough to do so.

I think all artist at the end of their careers should do this. Imagion if someone opened the Dr. Dre vault, he could release "Lost Tapes" for decades and live off that.

With the way things are going, I agree with what someone said, keep you studio albums on iTunes and Amazon, release your "Lost Tapes" and "Greatest Hits" at Target and Best Buy.

oh, you can do online too. I'm just saying that with the media changing, I think of greatest hits as something I buy at Best Buy, and I think of new albums as something I download off Amazon. With the physical CDs, you can add bonus tracks, so it'd be 12 Lost Tracks songs, plus a couple of bonuses on the CD.
