The Artist: Nas
Why He Should Book Studio Time With Rick Rubin: Nas actually has rapped on a Rick Rubin beat before. He was a part of the "Classic (Better Than Ever Before)" track that Rubin produced in 2007 for Nike that also featured Kanye West, Rakim, KRS-One and DJ Premier. But we've never heard Nasty on a Rick Rubin track by himself. And because Jay-Z has worked with Rubin in the past and is working with him again, Nas pretty much has to get on a Rubin track before he hangs up the mic for good. It just wouldn't be right if he didn't.
