The Lost Tapes 2 gathers never-before-heard (for the most part) tracks from sessions that birthed Hip Hop Is Dead, Untitled, Life Is Good, and Nasir. As it continues the premise that 2002's The Lost Tapes started, it could easily be said that The Lost Tapes 2 is one of the most storied & anticipated projects for Nas fans, and with a superstar lineup handling the production—RZA, Swizz Beatz, Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, No I.D., Pete Rock, DJ Toomp The Alchemist, etc.—the 16-tracker certainly delivers. Despite his veteran status, Nas continues to push himself artistically, rapping over a diverse selection of beats; Check out "Queens Wolf," "Jarreau of Rap," "Beautiful Life," "No Bad Energy," "Vernon Family," and "Lost Freestyle."
