A sequel to Nas' profound compilation album, The Lost Tapes, was rumored to be released in 2010.

Obviously the project has yet to see the light of day. However, Mass Appeal's CEO Peter Bittenbender has confirmed that it is on the way.

In a recent interview with Drip alongside Mass Appeal's creative director Sacha Jenkins, Bittenbender stated that Lost Tapes 2 will likely be released next year following Nas' next album on Def Jam.

"Nas is working to deliver this next record to Def Jam, which will be his last [for them]. I haven't been too involved in that, so I can't tell you when it's coming. Once that's out, then Lost Tapes will follow shortly after. It'll definitely be a 2016 release, hopefully earlier in the year than later. The music's amazing. It carries on what he built with the first Lost Tapes. The fans are gonna love it."

Two albums in one year from Nas will be the perfect way to make up for not dropping any new material since 2012.
