Nas has been teasing The Lost Tapes 2 for quite sometime now. The Queensbridge artist/entrepreneur took to Instagram on Tuesday (Jun. 11), officially announcing the long-awaited album. In the video, Nas is seen wearing a white lab jacket and matching gloves holding a clay sculpture of a cassette tape. The piece was designed by New York artist Daniel Arsham. The Lost Tapes 2 is the sequel to Nas’ 2002 project, which featured unreleased records from the I Am… and Stillmatic recording sessions.
