Speaking to Pitchfork, Beatz discussed his soon-to-be-released second solo album Poison, which features Nas on one of the tracks. The producer revealed that the track was originally on an unreleased Nas album the two made together.
“I did his album two years ago in one week in L.A.,” he said. “In the studio every day at 12 o’clock, just bang bang bang. Recorded the whole thing, got it all on film. It was an ill process.” Beatz also described the Nas tracks as “super crazy, maniac shit.”
Aside from recently releasing his 11th studio album Nasir, Nas will earn additional money from a startup he invested in that now has been acquired by Amazon.
PillPack, a door-to-door service that allows customers to purchase medication online and have it delivered to their door, was originally invested in by Nas in 2014. Recently, PillPack was bought by Amazon for $1 billion.
In other related Nas news, Kelis, the rapper’s ex-wife, recently spoke about the two’s marriage and what led to her divorcing him.
“A lot of mental and physical abuse,” she told Hollywood Unlocked CEO Jason Lee. “It got to the point where if I wasn’t pregnant, I might have stayed with him. I was pregnant and it was a mess and I felt like I wasn’t going to bring a child into this.”
According to Kelis, Nas would get “blackout drunk” and angry over her interactions with other men in the music industry, including his former rival Jay-Z. “We would fight,” she admitted.
