With last week’s VH1’s Behind the Music feature and the success of his latest single, “The Don”, rapper Nas has finally hit us with a release date for his tenth album, Life is Good. Four years after the Queens native last solo project, Untitled, this one is set to be released on July 17th. Since his 1994 debut project Illmatic, deemed one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time, Nas has grown into a global icon. With a few unexpected collaborations and his inevitable ability to stay true to his New York hip-hop roots this album is sure to be “everything”.
“This is everything that I’ve got to say…I guess you got to live a little, sometimes not all the time, but you’ve got to live a little and you put that in your music and it’s coming from my life;” stated the rapper in a recent interview with MTV back in March.
Nas’ next Life is Good single, "Daughters" produced by No I.D., is set to drop May 1.
