Nas preps 10th solo album

Nas is clearly not looking to take a break anytime soon. The Queensbridge rapper who is currently readying the release of his collaborative album with reggae artist/producer Damian "Jr Gong" Marley has given hint to releasing a 10th solo album following the release of Distant Relatives.

Distant Relatives is due for release in August of this year and Nas is already prepared to hit the studio booth to record new tracks for a solo project before Distant Relatives is even released.

Nas' 10th album will be a follow up to his 2008 controversial release Untitled.
