It’s a great day for hip hop. After Drake dropped an overnight mixtape (that seems to be the thing now), J. Cole announced the Forest Hills Drive tour, and now, this. One of our all-time favorite producers, Timbaland shares a snippet of the newest Nas to come.

In 2013, Timbo stated that he would be working on Nas’ follow-up to Life Is Good, so it looks like … this could be it.

Have a listen down bottom.
