Nas and Robin Thicke Have a New Song on the Way
Thicke announced the news in a since-deleted Instagram post that revealed the purported single cover art and was simply captioned "coming next week." The track is called "Deep," but no other details were given about the upcoming collab. A rep for producer Rich Skillz did reach out to XXL to confirm that not only did Skillz produce the song but he's also producing a Robin Thicke's upcoming album.
Nas has slowly been creeping back into the rap consciousness after making behind the scenes plays, for the most part, for the past couple years. He made waves with the DJ Khaled collab "Nas Album Done" off the We The Best boss' new album Major Key. Now we wait for the aforementioned finished product which will be the Nasty One's first LP since 2012's Life Is Good.
XXL Freshman Dave East, who is signed to Nas' Mass Appeal Records, has offered up some small details on the forthcoming project from the Queens legend. “It’s fire,” East told Billboard of the new album. “I might be on it.”
Nas has a lot on his plate right now. It was recently announced he would executive produce and star in the film Monster along with A$AP Rocky. The film tells the story of Steve (played by Kelvin Harrison Jr.), a 17-year-old honors student and aspiring filmmaker in Harlem, who gets charged with felony murder for a crime he says he didn’t commit. Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson is also part of the ensemble cast.
