Mick Boogie x Nas "The Lost Tapes 2" (Mixtape, 2003)

Back in October, 2010, an e-mail from Nas was leaked online, where Nas "allegedly" communicated to Def Jam, "put my shit out!" in reference to "The Lost Tapes 2," and that was just the title of the e-mail. An unnamed rep from Nas' camp authenticated the e-mail (via MTV), saying "It was a personal e-mail," ... "[The leak] wasn't planned. It was not meant to be blasted out in the world, but we're not upset about it." You can read the full e-mail below, and if you're a fan like me - even all these years later, you still want that album! While I'm sure we will get it one day, we can look back to 2003, when Mick Boogie released this Nas mixtape, "The Lost Tapes 2." The unofficial mix features a few live joints, as well as "The Pledge," "Sometimes I Wonder," "The Rise & Fall," "The Essence," "Stay Chiseled," "Holla Back," "Queens Day" and lots more in that vein. Nothing groundbreaking and exclusive, but a nice collection of tracks and Mick Boogie is always on point in the mix, listen below.
