DJ Khaled’s We the Best Radio is back with another episode. After a monumental debut featuring Future and the premiere of his album EVOL last week, Khaled is planning to make your Friday evenings special with his mixes and interviews.
Tonight, Khaled’s special guest is the Queensbridge legend Nas. During their conversation, they addressed a wide range of topics including the making of "Hate Me Now," throwback studio stories with Biggie, his business ventures (Mass Appeal, Bevel, Sweet Chick), and the artists he's feeling in hip-hop today. Among those names were Chance the Rapper and Yo Gotti, as well as Harlem's own Dave East and Fresno's Fashawn.
We also get an update on his untitled follow-up to 2012's Life is Good. One of the main reasons for the hold up is Nas is still looking for inspiration and trying to find the right vibe. He is ready to make an album, which is a good sign for Nas fans. As far as producers and features, Nas didn't reveal anyone concrete yet, but he's been in the studio with Large Professor and Da Beatminerz. He also confirmed his collaboration with Timberland, Jay Z and Justin Timberlake is real. It's undetermined if "Sinatra in the Sands" will make this album or be set aside for another The Lost Tapes project.
Another highlight was when Khaled brought up Swizz Beatz. Swizzy and Nas have a history together, and made a ton of records recently that Nas "still can't believe we did." He goes on to say, "I think we had a Virgo moment." So look out for those songs.
