Nas album done!
After announcing a series albums that he’s producing, Kanye West has revealed a June 15 release date for Esco’s long-awaited next album, which he also had a hand in producing. “I’m hand producing all the albums I tweeted about,” he said. “Been chopping samples from the sunken place.”
Yeezy made the “sunken place” reference to last year’s Get Out after saying he loves the way “Candace Owens thinks.” Owens has been called a controversial right-wing conservative. “I believe the black community can do it without hand-outs,” she tweeted following his praise. “I believe the Democrats have strapped us to our past to prevent us from our futures. And I won’t stop fighting until all black Americans see that. I’m not far right—I’m free.”
In addition to Nas, Kanye also recently revealed release dates for Pusha T’s next LP (May 25), his next solo album (June 1), a Kid Cudi joint project called Kids See Ghosts (June 8), and Teyana Taylor’s sophomore effort (June 22).
The Nas album is a long time coming and it follows several teasers. In 2016, Esco even released a song called “Nas Album Done” f DJ Khaled’s Major Key. However, delays kept it in the vault. It will be his first album since 2012’s Life Is Good.
