Although Nas has worked with a huge list of producers, he hasn't released a final track listening as of yet for his new album, N*gger. A few of his collaborators are saying the songs they did with Nas should be out soon. "Me and Nas did a record together, and it's huge," Captain Charisma himself, DJ Khaled, said last week. "Remember when Diddy and Nas did a record together called 'Hate Me Now'? In 2008, it's Nas and Khaled. We did a record for my [upcoming] album. I'm in the studio right now working for my [new] album. But I told Nas if he wants to use that for his first single, we can go and do that and make history. I hope that goes down. Either way, you will hear the record. We definitely did something, and it's huge. I actually don't know what he's calling it. I do have the record, though, and it's amazing."
Nas told MTV at the red carpet of the Grammy Awards that "We gotta offend." "I'm offended. I get treated like a nigger all the time," Kelis added. "If we don't offend, we're not gonna get no answers," Nas continued. "Don't be scared, be prepared."
