RUMOR: Jay-Z & Nas Collabo Album In The Works?

While rumors have been circulating for months about Jay-Z’s post-Def Jam future, an item in the New York Daily News‘ Rush & Molloy column today posits a new theory. The gossip writers claim to have heard that Jay is partnering with Nas for a new album of duets called The Kings Of Hip-Hop. They go on to say that it will be released in early 2009 on Jay-Z’s new label, Carter Music Group, although they do not speculate on who Jay will partner with for the label. Nas is currently signed to Def Jam for a four-album deal, of which he has completed one album, 2006′s Hip-Hop Is Dead.

        You are a hater.Them niggas better than any rapper that ever come out of the SOUTH!! Nas and Jay-Z two of the top 5 all-time! Show some respect little nigga!!

      • D.Rob

        Trickdd or whoever you are u must not know much about hip hop man… its really sad that you would say something like that. I challenge you to name one rapper from the south who lyrically can go at it with Nas or Jay “dont worry I’ll wait” in the words of Kat Williams! You just cant compare the east coast and the south because of their contrasting styles the southern MCs aim to put on a show or NOVELTY act while the east coast MCs lean toward being lyracist just think before you type dude….

      • KEKE

        YOU MUST BE FROM THE SOUTH WITH ALL THAT BULLSHIT COMING OUT YOUR MOUTH JAY-Z AND NAS ARE THE BEST RAPPERS OUT SINCE BIG AND PAC PLEASE SIT DOWN AND BOW DOWN THE THE MOTHERFUCKING GREATEST

    • http://xXLMAG Unknown

    • sean_izzle

      dont be mad you countryboy because Nas & Jay-Z are better than youre fav southern ATL rappers, their collabo would also sell more records than wack Young jeezy and Lil Wayne, if the album comes then it will be classic n top multiplatinum believe me!

      Nas killed Jeezy with Hip Hop Is Dead when his album sold more than Jeezys firts week so dont hate and Jay-zs American gangter sold ver 420.000 first week and Lil Waynes Like Father Like Son flopped in comparison

  • DOGG WILLIAMS

    If their going to do that, then they both should retire completely after releasing it.

    It makes no sense to do something as big as that, and then try and make an solo project afterwards. What’s the point?

  • JayLat

    two of the best NY MC’s to ever touch the mic, this shit would be the best album ever in my eyes.

  • sean_izzle

    this is fuckin great i cant wait to hear if this is really true DAMN! Jay-Z and Nas album woooowww

  • KLETEWOOD

    Its a lot easier to eather eachother when their on the same album. hahaha.

  • dope

    Dope

  • drox

    damn if this is true….str8 fire from the studio! I hope they dont use 2 much primitive beats that luggs their sales (eventho they big!) one mo thing 4 u haterz that think jigga & nas fell off…check out the source! It aint sohh.com nor xxlmag.com itself…it’s f’in NY post!! Go & check how many times ur sorry a** favorite rappers r mentioned in the NY post…. NY bay bay!!

  • The Pharmacist

    Please let it be true…just switch that title up. On another note, I heard some of the new Nas and that shit is bangin!

  • The Pharmacist

    Please let it be true

  • Jay Dunk

  • http://xXLMAG jb-da b.stuy reppa

    That’s what i’m talking about!!!!! Hip Hop needs this right here. And ain’t nothing wrong with the title of the album!!! They two of the last real lyricist left. Hopefully the album will drop though. It could be another pipedream. Just like the Detox album we been waiting 30 years for.

    http://www.myspace.com/lidujay

  • H-DUB

    So who does not want to hear that Collabo Album? This probably gonna be the best you can get! But, 4-Album Deal with Def Jam for NAS means he would have to drop 2 Albums this year + maybe another Greatest Hits or “Lost and Found” or whatever. Very Very unlikely unless they can agree with Def Jam for a Buyout. Let´s see who is the better Bizness Man, Hova or the new Def Jam President !

  • master cheef

    it’ll never happen. just a bullshit rumour.

  • moresickaMC

    YESSSS!!!!!!!!!!! Make it happen!!! And pur Primo on THAT!!!

  • moresickaMC

    YESSSS!!!!!!!!!!! Make it happen!!! And put Primo on THAT!!!

  • Dan99

    If it does happen, it’ll be like in a very long time, cause god knows how long it takes nas to drop an album

    • Worley

      That’s why his sh*t is usually head and shoulders above the rest. All these Biggie imitators claiming they don’t write lyrics end up reciting a lot of trash. Ask TI and TIP.

  • fla all day

    this would be off the chain, but personally i dont think they have chemistry. i would definetly cop the album though.

  • Pierzy

    The two greatest living MC’s would make a classic album for the ages! And moresickaMC is right on – get Preemo on that joint too!

  • ept native

    this could be good for hip hop

  • Neven

    NaS said he only had one album left and that he had big plans for the future and he would be focusing on the people that NaS is suppose to reach. That the case and he does do an album with Jay then yes bring in the preemo, ye’s, dres, alchamist but don’t forget about the Talibs, evidence, 3000, rakims, some of the great no club rapppers and make a classic album of positve message with those uplifted beats Hip Hop goes in a circle southren your time is up ( not hatin’ just reality look at goodie mob, outkast, O.N. they shined ,then midwest blew up and the west was back time for peace in the east)

  • SaI

    Yea thats the s#!t its gna b gOOd 4 HIP HOP lyk Kept native sed

  • Q! tha Great!

    It sounds like a winner, only one concern! The two collabos that they did already, Black Republican and Success, didn’t move me very much at all. So I hope they execute better if they make a whole album together.

  • Mr.Wang

    Yo fuck Trickdd

    i hope dis does happen 4real

    i love da NY an dey do need to come back
    fuck dat shit Trickdd talkin bout

    Just cause you’re into south music doesn’t mean you gotta desrespect music from other parts of the country…I mean if it wasn’t for New York MCs there would be none of that stuff you listen to now. Man thats why there’s always people hatin on the south, its cause of ignorant dudes like you man. Its not like they’re asking you to buy there stuff, if you don’t like it well then Blow Out Your A**. That should ring a bell right?

  • http://XXLMAG DUNFIYA

    TWO TOTALLY DIFFERENT DELIVERIES IT WON’T WORK….the DUN HAS SPOKEN…. DJ PREMIER > YOUR FAVORITE PRODUCER

  • Saint

    Actually a collabo album that should work….I believe it will..

  • nalee4

    fuck the south them niggas canot rap and all the shit they make is for bitches anyway with that snap music bullshit and dance music when is the last time they made some street music fuck the south

  • http://xxlmag.com reckman

    its good that they might collabo but nas and jay are weak now the south takein over west is wayyyyyyyyyyy better then east

  • Moneydan

    Trickdd is the biggest bitch to ever get on this site.You always talkin about how you rep the 239 and FLA stand up,and how lil wayne and rick ross is so real.Shut the fuck up and stop makin homo comments all the time than saying it’s someone else.Don’t say 239 anymore your makin it look bad.

  • josh

    i doubt this is gonna happen. I would much rather want to see a nas/AZ duo album than a jay-z duo album.

  • jr

    Unless they get some classic producers on this its gonna be some whack pop shit-jayz and nas just dont match very well. nas cant ride club beats well its his only weakness
    WHERE IS Premier?qtip?large professor? U WANT NEW YORK ON TOP MAKE HIM THEM EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS Not fucking dj tooamp

    the south is whack and their rap is trash and their beats are trash. listen to they reminsce over you by pete rock- thats a real beat

    All the talk about is materalism

    Hell Yeah, Jay & Nas, Its already a classic, real hip hop, all u soulja boy’s out there, GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE!

  • Anti-Mainstream

    This is what Hip Hop needs right now for real. If they could get the right cast of producers together which I’m sure they will this could be a Hip Hop classic. Oh yeah and Trickdd-Your wack as fuck. First your on another page dissin Krs-One, and now your dissin Nas and Jay. Say what you want homie, but them niggas will never be as legendary or in the same class as Nas, Krs, or Jay! That wack-ass snap yo fangaz, superman that hoe style bullshit that’s ben destroying Hip Hop these past few years is dying out fast son, so bow down and respect the legends!!!

  • NYC BiG DEAZ

  • Anti-Mainstream

    The two best things happening in Hip Hop right now. Krs-One’s 2008-09 Stop the violence movement with him and every hot artist in the game today spittin on the mic, and this collabo in the works right here. Looks like there will be a fresh ending to what has been for the most part a stale decade for Hip Hop.

  • d

    maybe they should play a 1 on 1 baseball game against each other. nas as the met & jay as the yankee…a subway series…personally,i agree wit someone else b4 who said nas & jay aint got NO chemistry… this album aint never gonna happen. nas doesnt make that much music anymore. at home fuckin kelis, which is not a bad look, but nas lazy…

  • Slicer

    Damn Trickdd go suck a southern dick u little ho.
    These 2 are legends this album would be the shit.
    What southern rappers are legends and i mean real legends i count 3.Scarface , and UGK.
    What u got and dont say T.I or Luda cause they aint shit.

  • Weezy-fan

    If this happens it will be SO ASS!
    both of these niggas should have squashed their beef and made this album 5 years ago. Now they are both washed up

    P.S. Weezy F. Baby The Best Rapper Alive

  • R..Dot

    This would be one of the greatest albums ever.
    Ye Digg??

  • http://www.myspace.com/oneunknownone Unknown Productions

    No doubt, Jay and Nas album would hopefully be ill…The south is kind of doing their thing, really sounds the same all around down there, but to think their artists are hotter than Jay or Nas, especially when their top artist is alittle boy that says “Superman”, cmon…South gets props for added a different feel to hip hop, but get over yourselves…NY has not really had anything really popping…So this might be something definitely worth checking out….

  • Toneloctheilla

    They wouldn’t do an album together because they know they don’t have any kind of chemistry. Black Republicans was straight because it was monumental, but I have to say they didn’t go well together. I would hope Nas wouldn’t fuck up like that. Nas would lose most of his core audience if he did that. I don’t think he’s that stupid, but then again, Jay might have brought Nas over to the DARKSIDE.
