Nas Set To Release Memoir “It Ain’t Hard To Tell”In 2012 + Jay-Z Covers “THE SOURCE” For The 10th Anniversary Of “The Blueprint!

Harper Collins announced today that they will be publishing Nas’ memoir It Ain’t Too Hard to Tellnext yearThe memoir which was co-written by journalist Touré will chronicle “his storied Hip Hop career.” And with Nas being so open lately (recently dishing on divorce and baby mamas) we might get all the hip-hop dirt on his breakup with The Firm, reuniting with AZ, and his legendary beef with Jay-Z

“THE SOURCE” dedicates its cover for October 2011 issue (on stands Sept. 20) to the 10th anniversary of Jay-Z’sBlueprint disc.
In the mag’s feature piece written by Elliott Wilson, Jay-Z’s epic career is described like this:
“After his classic 1996 debut, Reasonable Doubt, ignited the streets, dazzled the critics, but didn’t move enough units, Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter scrapped his bad marketing plan for a one-album discography and decided to drop a new masterful work each and every year. He emerged center stage with a fervent desire to be #1 in the post “Pac-Biggie” era. No MC ever wanted the throne as much as Hov. If consistency kills, he was the Son of Sam, and by the time he got to his sixth album, his frustrated competitors were firing shots back.”
