Nas Says He's Been A "Big Fan" Of Future For A While

He also details the creative process for his next album.

Published April 7, 2016

Nas has fallen back in the hip hop scene since releasing his last album four years ago but he certainly isn’t getting any poorer. Among his famed partnership with Hennessy, it’s been made public just how many investments the Queensbridge emcee has his hands in.

Recently speaking with Complex while at his The Piccards Hennessy campaign, Nas reverted back to music a little bit and even revealed his fondness for an unlikely potential collaborator: Future.

"My business partner Anthony Saleh works with Future and I've been a big fan for a while," he explained. "He speaks to things I used to see growing up in Queensbridge. This song specifically has something for everyone to relate to."

Nas also briefly talked about his next album, which he called a “fun Nas album.” "I'm letting the music dictate [the direction]. Words can't explain that," he said of his next album. "It's going to be a fun Nas album."

The last time Nas released an album was in 2012 with Life Is Good. He appeared on the remix of Future’s “March Madness” but the two have yet to work together in a full capacity.
