blames the label like a little bitch and then says he is inspired by Odd Future and his new album will be in an entirely new direction... Score = 0

So the fuck what! The whole label dispute is old news. Def Jam has been shady towards artists for quite some time.

While I would have liked to have heard Lost Tapes 2, I support Nas in whatever decision he makes, and I'm looking forward to the next album.

Def Jam isn't shady towards Rick Ross, or Roc A Fella, or 1000 other acts... so I dunno... where is all this shadiness you talk about?

I'm hopeful for his next album but Drake, Wayne and Odd Future isn't exactly the best folks for someone like Nas to be drawing inspiration from.

hopefully they're inspiring him to move in an entirely different direction from what they've done....after Nas's effort with Damien Marley I still have confidence in him to create something good or even great, no matter what he's saying about this new "inspiration"....

Method Man even makes a reference to it on Wu Massacre.

I think when he says Tyler inspired him he menas by putting out the music he wants and also being something fresh to the game. Nothing wrong with that, i'm just glad he did not say Gucci Mane inspired him or some shit like that.

Plus Nas has never put out a whack album his whole career so no need in worrying about the quality of his next release.

They're a business... they aren't going to throw good money at bad. Now, if they're blocking him from financing or promoting himself, then I guess it would be a little shady. You have to realize that the artists all want what's in their own best interests, regardless of the potential impact on the label.

Method Man is not going to sell... period. Don't even bother lining up arbitrary numbers. If he was an earner he would never bitch about the label. Just like Emmit & Aikman never complained about the JJs... they didn't need to because there was mutual fulfillment.

Although I was looking forward to Lost Tapes 2 obviously, it doesn't surprise me that it has been shelved. It's been in limbo, if you will, for a long time now.

This. And Meth has been given plenty of chances to sell and he hasn't. He got as much promo as The Roots did with his last album.. and that wack ass Tical prequel CD got plenty of promo.

As a music collector, I would love for the Lost Tapes 2 CD to come out. However, as long as Nas puts out some dope product, that will be good enough for me.

It also surprised me a little to read today that Nas didn't think the Untitled album was "entirely solid". That album was excellent, the best album of 2008 IMO.

Nas is right about Untitled not being "entirely solid".

Yeah I read that and was surprised too. I love Untitled and still bump it occasionally.

Untitled has grown on me. I didn't care for it much when it first dropped but after time it's got a lot of plays from me. I thoroughly enjoy it now except for 3 songs.

I really hope it does surface one day. The Lost Tapes was an excellent piece of work and I hold it in very high regard. It was actually my favorite work from Nas at one point but has been bumped down a bit in recent times.
