Is Nas going to drop an 'Illmatic 2'?
More than 20 years have passed since Nas released his first album, "Illmatic." Now we're all wondering, when will there be a follow-up? "Illmatic" is considered to be not only one of Nas' greatest works, but also one of the best hip hop albums of all time. So it makes sense that fans would be hoping for a sequel.
Meanwhile, the rapper recently received the Vibe Impact Award. According to Hot New Hip Hop, the magazine asked him whether he might head back to the studio to record the second installment.
"I definitely thought about that," he said, as quoted by the news source. "It just has to flow, it has to be natural ... It got to to be honest."
Remember when Nas declared that "hip hop is dead" in 2006? Fortunately, he seems to be optimistic about where the music is heading. AllHipHop reported that the MC cited Drake, Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole as three rappers who make him confident about the future of the genre.
What do you think is Nas' best album?
