Last week, Nas spent just about all of his time celebrating the 20th anniversary of his debut album, Illmatic. He released a reissue of the project called Illmatic XX. He attended the premiere of his new documentary, Time Is Illmatic. And he performed all of the songs from the album during a special concert. So last week was all about Illmatic and nothing else.
That doesn’t mean that Nas doesn’t have one eye on the future, though. Even though he’s been celebrating the past, the Queensbridge rapper is also reportedly working on his 12th as-yet-untitled solo album right now. And while he hasn’t talked about it much yet, we’re expecting some big things from it when it finally comes out. Here are the 5 things Nas needs to do on his next album.
