New York, NY -- Columbia Records announces the upcoming release of Greatest Hits, the definitive collection of classic tracks and more from the pioneering hip-hop icon Nas. Nas' Greatest Hits will be available in stores and online on Tuesday, November 6.

A career-spanning retrospective which also serves as an ideal introduction to Nas' most unforgettable tracks, Greatest Hits reprises 12 essential cuts culled from the artist's monumental Columbia Records catalog -- from 1994's Illmatic, one of the most influential albums in hip-hop history, through 2004's double disc masterpiece Street Disciple -- while premiering 2 newly recorded songs: "Surviving The Times" and "Less Than An Hour," featuring Cee-Lo, new theme music created for the soundtrack for "Rush Hour 3."

Since the 1994 release of Illmatic, the blueprint album which laid the foundation for East Coast hip-hop in the 90s while establishing Nas as one of hip-hop's most electrifying and influential urban street poets, Nas continues to be one of hip-hop's most potent, provocative, and abiding forces with a string of chart-topping RIAA gold and platinum successes to his credit: Illmatic (1994); It Was Written (1996); "Street Dreams" (1997); I Am...The Autobiography (1999); Nastradamus (1999); Stillmatic (2002); The Lost Tapes (2002); God's Son (2002); Street's Disciple (2004); and Hip Hop Is Dead (2006).

More than 20 million Nas albums, singles, and digital tracks have been sold worldwide since the release of Illmatic in 1994.
