Nas Announces New Album, Speaks on the Fate of the “Hustlers” Video

nas1.jpgNas recently revealed to MTV’s Mixtape Monday that he intends to drop another album before 2007 is out. According to Godson, the as-yet untitled project is already halfway done and he hopes to get it into stores by December. “I’m really into [the idea of having] a summer album,” he told MTV News. “But they say the fourth quarter is for big dogs. I been doing the fourth quarter for years, so I guess I’m at home in the fourth.” Although he previously stated that he would be continue to work closely with producer and Black Eyed Peas frontman on the his next project, as he did on 2006’s Hip-Hop is Dead, the Queensbridge native says he has scrapped most of that material and started fresh. Nas also opened up about the fate of the video for “Hustlers,” his collaboration with The Game that appeared on Hip-Hop is Dead. Apparently the video was shot and edited, but ended up being shelved because of timing issues. A video for his long awaited collaboration with Jay-Z “Black Republicans,” which was set to be helmed by legendary director Spike Lee, was also killed because Nas and Spike couldn’t agree on a treatment.
