Mass Appeal CEO\u00a0Peter Bittenbender revealed that Nas' "Lost Tapes 2" is schedule for a 2016 release. "I love talking about it," Bittenbender says, "because every time I talk about it, I feel like I\u2019m helping bring it to life. Nas is working to deliver this next record to Def Jam, which will be his last . I haven\u2019t been too involved in that, so I can\u2019t tell you when it\u2019s coming. Once that\u2019s out, then Lost Tapes will follow shortly after. It\u2019ll definitely be a 2016 release, hopefully earlier in the year than later. The music\u2019s amazing. It carries on what he built with the first Lost Tapes. The fans are gonna love it." The Queensbridge lyricist is a co-founder of Mass Appeal Records, thus far he signed Cali native Fashawn, Run The Jewels, Boldy James, Bishop Nehru, and Dave East. Nas confirmed last year that his final album under Def Jam is complete.
