Jay-Z & Nas To Release Collabo Album?

Published: Monday 25th Feb 2008 by Sam
According to the NY Daily News, rappers Jay-Z and Nas may be dropping a collaborative LP in the near future:

Rumors continue to swirl about Jay-Z’s still-unconfirmed new record label, Carter Music Group. We hear that Jay is partnering with rapper Nas on an album of duets, “The Kings of Hip Hop,” to be released on the label early next year. Jay’s rep is keeping tight-lipped.

As appealing as the concept sounds, it’s probably best left on paper. Jay, of all people, should know that collabo albums tend to have more riding against them than for them (see: ‘Best of Both Worlds’). Random tidbit: What happened to Bow Wow & Omarion’s ‘Face Off? LMAO.

Your thoughts?

    Hooking two of the greatest rappers alive up with a load of hot producers with hot beats and having them exchange raps across a whole album? I don’t want it to stay just a concept so I definitely disagree! This would be awesome! Jay-Z and R. Kelly didn’t work because when you have a rap track with an R&B chorus or an R&B track with a rap verse you don’t want it to be the same two artists singing or rapping on every song. Same goes for Bow Wow and Omarion’s collabo although as they can hardly be compared to Jay-Z and R. Kelly’s talent, on a lesser scale!

    This would be hot though, I hope it comes to pass!
