Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones, better known by his stage name Nas, is an American rapper, songwriter, and entrepreneur. Rooted in the New York rap scene, he is regarded as one of the greatest rappers of all time. The son of jazz musician Olu Dara, Nas has released twelve studio albums since 1994, with seven of them certified platinum and multi-platinum in the US. Nas has been praised for his ability to create a “devastating match between lyrics and production”, as well as creating a “potent evocation of life on the street”, and he has even been compared to Rakim for his lyrical technique. The Lost Tapes 2 is a compilation album, released on July 2019 by Mass Appeal Records and Def Jam Records. It features unreleased tracks from Nas’ last four studio albums: Hip Hop Is Dead (2006), Untitled (2008), Life Is Good (2012) and the album scrapped in favor of Nasir (2018). It includes production from producers such as RZA, Swizz Beatz, Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, No I.D., Pete Rock and The Alchemist, among others.
