Through the recent phenomenon that is Instagram, Hip-Hop legend Nas has released the artwork for his upcoming album “Life Is Good”. Hip-Hop Kings previously reported that the album has a release date of 17th July 2012, and we’ve already heard two promo tracks from the project “The Don” and “Daughters“. Rumours are already circulating that the dress in the album cover belongs to Kelis, which would suggest Nas is subliminally saying that without her inspired the title for the album. Keep logging back to Hip-Hop Kings for all the Nas updates prior to the release of “Life Is Good” however you can view the official album cover above.
