#37. Nas - Life Is Good

Label: Def Jam
Release Date: Fall
Likelihood Of Release: 70%

Since the May 2010 release of Nas and Damien Marley's Distant Relatives, Nas has been in a great creative space. With impressive showings on “Nasty,” “Tower Heist,” and Common's “Ghetto Dreams,” the legendary rapper has us fiending for a new project. All of the aforementioned songs gave glimpses of a reinvigorated MC with something resembling a hunger to rhyme. It's hard to experience a rebirth 18 years into your career, but if anyone can, it's God's Son.
