When Nas announced in June that there could be second and third volumes of The Lost Tapes, fans of the Queens emcee undoubtedly salivated at the prospect.
The Lost Tapes, a 2002 compilation release of Nas tracks recorded between 1998 and 2001, quickly became a fan favorite with tracks like “No Idea’s Original,” “Drunk By Myself,” and “Poppa Was a Playa.”
MTV’s Shaheem Reid (@ShaheemReid) broke the story via his Twitter page. “@Nas sent word my way that Lost Tapes Volume 2 comes out on December 14,” he wrote.
Two hours later, Nas confirmed the news on Twitter, writing, “It’s coming… LOST TAPES VOLUME TWO!!!”
