We've been waiting for this one.

Published April 12, 2017

While Nas and DJ Khaled first planted the seed during 2016's "Nas Album Done," it appears as though now such an elusive project is no longer the stuff of mystery.

During an exclusive sit-down with, the rap icon touched on whether or not fans can except another studio album from him this year, and luckily enough, we sure can.

Although keeping details vague, Nas shared during his conversation with Billboard that he does in fact have another album on the way. The project, when it does arrive, will mark his official 11th studio offering.

"It’s not done 'til it hits the streets," the Queens icon admitted before finally confirming whether or not the album will arrive this year.

When asked if we can expect the project before the end of the year, Nas simply answered, "For sure."

He also shared that the album currently remains untitled. Hopefully we'll be treated to some more details soon. One thing is for certain, 2017 is certainly being kind to us music-wise.
