Although it has been quite some time since DJ Premier and Nas talked publicly about recording a complete album together, Premo promises the project will be done.
During a recent interview with Where’s My 40 Acres at Atlanta’s AC3 Festival, DJ Premier says that a joint album with Nas, which he will produce from beginning to end, will be released in the near future.
When asked why there hasn’t been a Nas album produced in full by DJ Premier, the legendary producer explains what the hold up is, and confirms that it is indeed coming as Premo states:
“It’s coming. I just saw him last week, it’s coming.”
“He [Nas] has another project to drop on Def Jam, then he is a free agent. So let him get that out. That gives me time to get my artists prepped and ready. Then we can all tour together or something.”
