The Nas x Frank Ocean Collab Has Been Found…

Back in July, news broke out that a Nas/Frank Ocean song — entitled “No Such Thing As White Jesus” — had been lost forever. That was until today, when HS87′s Ricky Anderson found the lost hard drive. Check the update Hit-Boy gave on the situation via Twitter…

I can’t fully recall as I’m still in shambles over this brick ass Canadian weather (damn you Calgary), but didn’t Nas say something about them never even having a song together? Or maybe he said they never finished one. Whatever the case may be, a track with them together would be pretty fresh IMO. Hopefully something comes to light soon..
