This week in Hip Hop news, rapper Nas drops an official remix to Schoolboy Q’s Studio and announces that he’s just about complete with his Def Jam contract. The rap veteran states in his lyrics,
“Finished up my new album, single bout to be dropping, last album on Def Jam, I got soo many options”
Nas’ deal with Def Jam took place back in 2006, when he was bought out of his contact with Columbia Records. That deal set the stage for Nas to release music under Def Jam Recordings, the rap label where Jay-Z was President at that time and helped push the deal through. The agreement paid Nas about $3 million, including a recording budget, for each of the first two albums and in addition, provides for two additional albums of which the Queens rap legend says is completed. Check out the freestyle below.
