Nas Breaks Down Working With Kanye West’s Hectic Schedule for ‘Nasir’ & His Thoughts on ‘Verzuz’ Battles
Nas chopped it up with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe to discuss what went into his 13th studio album King’s Disease, which Hit-Boy produced. But he reflected on Kanye West helming his last studio effort Nasir two summers ago, when ‘Ye transformed his Wyoming ranch into a hit-making factory for multiple artists.
“The thing about it was by the time I got there to the studio, all of those albums were done and I was coming to start mine. And I spent a lot of time there working with loops, ‘Ye would play loops and I would write, and he’d be like, ‘I’ll finish the beat later,'” he recalled of working on his album rollout process with the G.O.O.D. Music boss. “This man is cranking out all of these albums and they’re going to come out every Friday. And so he had to mix albums, finish albums. So I kind of had to wait till the last week before the album dropped to really have him in the room to really have him to be there to get these records done.”
He continued: “And so, I never been to Wyoming, you know what I’m saying? I thank him for bringing me out there and to see a different part of America and to be around that energy with all the producers and artists. But I also had my room to the side so if I wanted to work with them longer, because we only got, honestly, we hung around, we went over ideas, but it really, really got down to the wire, no pun, like at the last week, in the last week.” – Source
