Nas recently confirmed reports that he is starting to work on his new solo album, saying that it may become one of the most important projects of his career. During an interview with Tim Westood, Nas says he has a few producers already lined-up for the follow up to his 2008 "Untitled" album.
"I've been good though, my man [Damian Marley] holds me down — but I'm definitely looking at my solo project as one of the most important records of my life. You know what I mean? I'm happy, I'm happy to be here. I love the state of the game. I love it man…It's gonna be magic. That's all I feel. I feel a magic thing happening and brewing. I keep calling it a magic moment, that's what it's gonna be. I feel the stuff I'm writing down and the directions I'm thinking about going into, it doesn't even matter what producers, if it's Swizz Beatz, if it's Premier, if it's Alchemist, Dr. Dre, Kanye West, all of these guys are guys that I love and guys that I've been talking to about getting on the project. Kanye actually hit me up and said he wanted to produce the album and RZA."
