Nasty Nas’ controversial upcoming Def Jam album, Untitled, recently leaked online weeks before its scheduled release date.
Unlike previous album leaks like Lil’ Wayne’s Tha Carter III, which was intentionally leaked after Weezy made a controversial statement against mixtape DJs, Nas' album had experienced a slow release of individual tracks before being completely released. The first batch of leaked songs included “Breathe,” “Black President,” “Y’all My N*ggers,” “Fried Chicken,” “Sly Fox” and many others.
In a video clip released earlier this morning, the lyrically renowned rapper reacted to the project’s leaks.
“Eh yo, what’s up y’all, this is Nas,” he says. “And you know we get leaked. You know I been getting leaks forever. And it’s so f*cking exciting.”
Tossing a peace sign and smirk towards the camera, Nasty Nas walked away with his website’s banner posted on the screen, nasindependenceday.com.
Untitled is scheduled to hit stores July 15th.
