Nas’ forthcoming LP, Nigger, is looking to be a big event. The Queens rapper is currently in Los Angeles, still working on the album, according to MTV, despite already getting into the studio with several producers.

While a final tracklist is forthcoming, some of the producers and collaborators involved in the album are confident their contributions will make the final cut.

MTV spoke with several of the potentials, all of which seem enthusiastic about their time with Nas. Jermaine Dupri told the channel earlier this month about a track he gave the rapper.

“I’m just waiting for him to finish it right now,” he said. “He’s on the West Coast working on his album. I’m just waiting for him to call me and tell me it’s done. Hopefully, he likes it. The producer world is hard. [Artists] don’t be liking every beat you make. He gave me a lot of direction, so I felt it would have been easy for me to get on and do.”

Khaled, however, revealed his collabo with Nas, which is hoping will be the first single. Me and Nas did a record together, and it’s huge,” DJ Khaled told MTV. “Remember when Diddy and Nas did a record together called ‘Hate Me Now’? In 2008, it’s Nas and Khaled. We did a record for my [upcoming] album. I’m in the studio right now working for my [new] album. But I told Nas if he wants to use that for his first single, we can go and do that and make history. I hope that goes down. Either way, you will hear the record. We definitely did something, and it’s huge. I actually don’t know what he’s calling it. I do have the record, though, and it’s amazing.”

Polow Da Don, the producer behind a slew of tracks over the past year and helped Rich Boy launch his career, also said he has some heat for Nas as well. He also thinks it may be the first single.

“I just did one with Nas,” Polow said. “It’s crazy. I think it might be the first single. I think he might put the DJ Khaled record out. If not, he’s gonna put this one out. It’s f***ing crazy. It’s him; it’s still a hit, but it’s a club banger. He gets to be himself and please the masses. The song is called ‘My Legacy,’ and it’s talking about putting yourself on the line. He done spoke his mind his entire career, stood up for the people, but at the end of the day, ‘They still look at me as, ‘He’s just a nigger.’ No matter what great sh** I do, they gonna always try to discredit me. So this is my legacy. When I’m gone, what’s gonna be my legacy? Will they say, ]He’s great,’ or will they say, ‘He’s just another nigger?’ At the same time, it’s a club joint. That’s what’s dope about it. It’s so deep, but it’ll be serviced enough to where you’ll be like, ‘This is my joint!’ We didn’t stretch for the radio, but it’ll be perfect for the radio.”

So far, reports indicate that Nas has worked with not only the aforementioned producers, but also Salaam Remi, Diddy, and DJ Toomp.

There is still no concrete date for release, but Nigger is said to hit stores in December.
