Jhené Aiko Reveals One Of Her Favorite Rappers + Reveals How Her Nas Collabo Went Down

Jhené Aiko Apple Music Clip

R&B singer Jhené Aiko knows she put out a quality album with her newly released Chilombo. The popular crooner recently chopped it up about the project’s creation and securing some major guest features.

Big Facts

In a new Apple Music Beats 1 interview, Aiko goes over a bunch of topics centered on her LP. In addition to calling Top Dawg Entertainment’s Ab-Soul one of her favorite rappers, she also dished on securing rap pioneer Nas for the LP.

“All of the songs were recorded already and they were full songs. No one was like, ‘You need features.’ I wanted it to just be this full body of work. Because there was a point in time when I felt like, ‘I don’t need features – it’ll be tight with just me.’ But then it’s like the element of collaborating with people and coming together, is just like, we need more of that. … So anyway I did the song. It was a full, complete song and I was just like, ‘This beat – it reminds me of Nas.’ He came and I talked to him about the song and what I meant about certain things, and he went in and killed it.’ I was like, ‘I can’t believe Nas is right there.’” (Apple Music Beats 1)

High-Key Details

Last week, Aiko went online to geek out over having the top-selling R&B album with Chilombo. The crooner went to Instagram to celebrate her new LP dominating its competition.

“Thank you for listening. I hear you too”

Wait, There’s More

A few days ago, rap star Lil Uzi Vert co-signed Jhené Aiko’s new solo album. Future, who is featured on the LP, also went to social media to acknowledge the project and promoted their “Happiness Over Everything” single on his Instagram Story page.

“Thank you ya album too hard”

Before You Go

Initial estimates had the album set to debut at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart. Projections had the LP selling between 95,000 to 120,000 units in its opening week.

Happy 48th Birthday To Brooklyn Rap Legend AZ!

On this date in 1972, AZ was born Antonio Cruz in Brooklyn, New York. AZ is regarded as one of the most prolific emcees of the 90s, even though his entrance into the game came from just one verse on Nas’ “Life’s A Bitch” from the epic Illmatic album.

That one verse led to an album deal with EMI Records, who released his critically acclaimed Do Or Die album in 1995. He was later chosen as one of the four emcees that would eventually form The Firm, a legendary four-person crew that included Nas, Foxy Brown, Nature and AZ, but Nature’s position was originally filled by Queensbridge’s Cormega. The Firm’s solitary album, which was produced entirely by Dr. Dre, is recognized as one of Hip Hop’s most coveted albums because of its East Coast/West Coast combination during the height of the East Coast/West Coast rap rivalry. AZ went on to put out eight more solo albums, with Do Or Die 2 expected later this year.

Happy 48th Born day to AZ from The Source Magazine, wishing him many more in the future!

Nas is Working on a New Album According to Big Sean

Big Sean is working on his highly-anticipated project, and while we don’t have a release date, he did confirm that another well-respected artist is also working on a new album.

The Detroit emcee posted a video of a studio session he was at with Nas. “By the way Nas gonna drop a new album,” Sean said while pointing the camera to the Queens legend. “I’m putting Nas on blast right now.” Esco also teased this unnamed album. “It be something like that,” he says. “It’s kinda hard to replace me, man.”

It’s unclear whether or not the two rappers were working on a collaborative effort or if they were just kicking it.
