Nas’s forthcoming album might have experienced a change in title (from N*gger to Untitled), but it seems to have inspired former Firm group member, AZ. On August 5, the Brooklyn native with release a mixtape project with DJ Absolut, entitled N4L: Niggaz 4 Life. Claiming support of Nas’ current music movement, AZ wrote on his MySpace page, “…You can expect [the album] to have conceptual n*gger records and freestyles!” Deemed as “Phase One,” the first record to be released from the project is The Secret, featuring appearances by Charlie Rock and The Clan’s Raekwon, with production from Addicted 4 Life. With distribution through Koch, the release of N4L is likely to receive heavier media coverage than both of AZ’s last two studio albums combined.
