Veteran East coast rhyme crusher Nas has recorded a song with controversial L.A. collective Odd Future for his forthcoming new album.
A source close to the group has confirmed that at least three of the OFWGKTA members will be on the track, which still in progress. The song is being produced by OF singer/producer Frank Ocean.
The untitled track will feature verses from Nas along with Odd Future member Hodgy Beats and group leader Tyler the Creator, whose debut full length album Goblin has been a polarizing force in the music world, derided for its homophobic and misogynistic lyrics.
The OFWGKTA crew has had very little record work with established rappers, particularly superstars on the level of Nas. It'll be interesting to see how the "blog rap" crew mixes personality with one of New York's lyrical kings.
37 year-old Nas put his highly anticipated Lost Tapes 2 album on hold to work on his current LP following his successful Distant Relatives collaboration with Damian Marley. His tenth album is expected to see the light this year.
