Nas Explains Why DJ Premier Didn't Appear On "Life Is Good"

Nas explains why longtime partner DJ Premier didn't make the final cut on "Life is Good."

Even though Nas's recently released tenth solo album Life is Good has been been earning the rapper heaps of critical praise, many golden era purists were let down by the lack of a collaboration between the QB emcee and the legendary DJ Premier. Now, in a recent interview with Young & Reckless, nasty Nas explains why his "NY State of Mind" partner didn't appear on his latest LP.

According to Nas, he didn't want to force a collab with Premo for the highly personal album. He explained that he felt that every song on Life is Good needed to fit the overall theme, an issue that would conflict with Premo's usual style of recording. Still, Nas hinted that fans shouldn't give up hope of seeing the two work together again, saying that they are, "cooking something up soon."

"I mean, I told Premier not this album," he said. "I started with Premier and that's a big deal to me…with this album, I wanted No I.D. and Salaam Remi to get together and pull out my dream for me. You've got Swizz Beatz, you've got J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League also, and Buckwild. Working with Premier is a different experience, it's a whole different thing. Premier's been in the game [since] before me, No I.D. and Salaam, so that's not something you just do to put on an album. To the Nas listeners, to the Nas-Premier fans out there, we're cooking something up soon."

As of last, Nas and Premo were reportedly toying with the idea of recording a collaborative LP.

Yes I agree, but why does that mean a Nas & Common album is an automatic "No" from you? They've mentioned it before so I'm looking forward to it. Hope it happens.

I'm tired of people making him explain why Premo's not on the album. He doesn't HAVE to work with Premo every single time around. smh.

Nas needs the Premo only album for his last album. While Im at it, he needs to end it just as he started it, 1 guest appearance, AZ, on that album and then ride off in the sunset.
sad day in hip hop

Ya I never thought of that but it sure would be a perfect way to end an amazing career. I think he's still got at least 3 albums left in him though.

I wish Premiere had a cut on there, or at least a bonus feature. I'm pretty sure, with Premiere's style, they could've found something that would fit the theme. I know Premiere capable of makin cuts to fit any theme.

Premier pretty much insinuated the next album will be an album between him an NaS.
