Nasir Jones, better known as rapper ‘Nas’ has tweeted that he will announce the title of a new album next month.

This will be the 11th solo studio album from the Queensbridge native. His ’94 album, Illmatic, of course, is regarded as one of the best albums of all time. His most recent project was Life Is Good, released in July 2012. Life Is Good was compared to Marvin Gaye’s 1978 album Here My Dear, as both works detailed their respective failed marriages, and subsequent divorces. Life Is Good was widely regarded as a success. It sold 149,000 copies in the first week, and has sold nearly 350,000 to date.

This new album (or at least the announcement of it) from Nas comes less than a year after Life Is Good, and will undoubtedly gain humongous attention from the hip hop community. I cannot wait for more details regarding this album. Stay tuned for any updates.
