    Nas is tired of waiting for his next album to see the light of day, and he’s letting his label know it!


     
    The rapper sent an open letter to the top executives at Def Jam, including the big man himself, LA Reid. He starts the message, titled “PUT MY SH*T OUT!”, writing, “With all do [sic] respect to you all, Nas is NOBODY’s slave.”
     
    At issue is Nas’ unreleased project Lost Tapes, which he said he started over five years ago. After years of cultivation, he said it’s finally ready for release but Def Jam is holding up the process, keeping his fans from receiving what they’ve been waiting for.
     
    “The #1 problem with DEF JAM is pretty simple and obvious, the executives think they are the stars,” Nas wrote. “You aren’t…. not even close. As a matter of fact, you wish you were, but it didn’t work out so you took a desk job. To the consumer, I COME FIRST. Stop trying to deprive them!”


     
    And, if the big wigs at Def Jam won’t move aside, Nas said he could easily rally the troops, stating, “I could go on twitter or hot 97 tomorrow and get 100,000 protesters @ your building but I choose to walk my own path my own way because since day one I have been my own man.”
     
    To Nas, part of being his own man is knowing when to play hardball. Until Lost Tapes drops, the rapper has vowed that he won’t work on another album, even though he knows that doing so would affect his contract.

     
    “You don’t get another Nas recording that doesn’t count against my deal….PERIOD!” Nas wrote. “I am ready to drop in the 4th quarter. You don’t even have sh*t coming out! Stop being your own worst enemy. Let’s get money!”
