Kanye West Reveals Nas’ Track List
When it comes to the top five rappers dead or alive, Nas is usually in the debate. The legendary Queens rapper released his classic debut album, “Illmatic” in 1993. After multiple platinum albums, rap beef with Jay-Z, highly-publicized divorce from singer Kelis, tax trouble and romance with Nicki Minaj more – Nas has emerged unscathed. His legendary status is still intact. The respect from guys and his sex appeal to women is as high as its ever been. That’s why his upcoming album is more anticipated than ever!
A Nas album has been rumored for a while now (remember DJ Khaled said “Nas Album Done”) Back in 2016, Kanye West famously promised Barack Obama that he would “do beats on NAS’ next album” in a since-deleted tweet. Now it seems that West really has stuck to his word and we’ll be getting said album in perfect time for the summer.
As we previously reported, West recently announced Nas would be dropping a new album on June 15th. However aside from the revelation, not much info has been released, until now. While the Kid Cudi/Kanye West aka Kids See Ghost project heats up, Mr. West shared the seven-song Nas tracklist which included the song titles: “Everything,” “Bonjour,” “Not For Radio,” “Adam & Eve,” “Simple Things,” “Cops” and “I Can Explain.”
Aside from being a talented producer, Kanye is a hip-hop fan. Tweeting out his excitement for working on Nas’ upcoming twelfth studio album his first in nearly six years.
Just wanted to say I’m up in the morning working on the Nas album and I’m so humbled by all the love we’re getting on these albums.

We’re still the kids we used to be. We’re here creating in real time just having fun,” said the rapper/producer who recently revealed he was not diagnosed with a mental disorder until he was 39.
I hear the albums blasting out of the cars when I walk down the street. Kids come up to me and tell me their favorite songs. We’re experimenting with new sounds structures and ideas.
