Nas is currently gearing up for the release of his Greatest Hits album which will be issued via his former label, Columbia Records.
"Less Than An Hour" also appears in Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan's third installment of the Rush Hour series.
"Nobody brings it like Brett Ratner," Nas said via a statement. "He's the street smart director and he knows his audience."
But Nas' appreciation for the Rush Hour series doesn't stop at Ratner's abilities as a director.
"I'm just happy Chris Tucker is back," Nas said. "It's not every year that we get to see him on the screen. Chris and Jackie Chan together again is what we've all needed! It's an honor for me to play my part musically in the film."
Nas' Greatest Hits album will hit shelves in November.
