Nas - Material Packaged for Lost Tapes 3 & 4

 

As fans patiently wait for Nas to drop The Lost Tapes 2 album on Friday (July 19), they can rest assured that they won't have to wait 17 years for another Lost Tapes project to be released.
During a listening party for LT2, the Queens rap legend revealed to attendees that he has many songs stashed away in the vault. "I put out the first Lost Tapes 17 years ago," Nas said in a video that was posted on 2 Cool 2 Blog's Twitter account on Wednesday (July 17). "Since then, you can imagine I piled up a lot of songs since then. So I got enough for Lost Tapes 2 now, and Lost Tapes 3 and Lost Tapes 4."
Nas added that future Lost Tapes projects will be different from the other ones and they will contain tracks scrapped from previous album recording sessions.
"The next one won't be 17 years, each one sounds different," he said. "This one [Lost Tapes 2] is definitely different."
At another point of the brief speech, Nas revealed some of the projects he's got song scraps from. "And we have been doing stuff from the Hip-Hop Is Dead album that didn't make it," he continued. "The Untitled album that didn't make it. Life is Good album that didn't make it. And there's old stuff in-between."
 The Lost Tapes 2 is said to feature 16 previously unreleased tracks from various recording sessions. Veteran producers RZA, Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, No I.D., The Alchemist, Kanye West, Statik Selektah and Hit-Boy have reportedly contributed beats on the release.
The set's first single from The Lost Tapes 2 project is the piano-driven "Jarreau of Rap (Skatt Attack)" featuring the late jazz singer Al Jarreau.

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body. WE HAD THE CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH GEM READ WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY!   How long have you been doing music and where you find the inspiration? Music has always been a part of my life, although being visible in the producers chair has been a natural progression over the past 4 ye

Sam Hankins was born to shine! Jazz Musician with a supreme Sound!

We were able to talk to a very talented musician by the name Sam Hankins.  His jazz music is full of soul, with inspiration that can light the path for fans and fellow musicians. Read the details about his journey below!   Interview Questions So when did you become a musician, and would you say it was the ideal path to take? Because I was born into a musical family, becoming a musician was not something I even thought about. It is in my blood. I knew I wanted to make music my career at the early age of 5 years old. I know that being a professional trumpeter and school band director is my calling.   Who are the jazz influences that inspired you? You know, I started off with singing & playing the guitar, but then I saw Louis Armstrong playing the trumpet & that decided it for me. When I spoke to my mom, she said that my uncle had an old trumpet that he used to play and once I had cleaned it out, my fate was sealed. Some of the other jazz influencers were Freddie Hubbard, Miles Da

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
