Nas and Kelis

As we reported last month, R&B singer Kelis is definitely pregnant, according to her husband Nas. They’ll know the sex of the baby as soon as next week, the rapper told MTV Sunday on the red carpet at the 2009 Grammys.

“Yeah, man, I find out what it’s gonna be next week, so I’m happy,” said the rapper, who has a 15-year-old daughter from a previous relationship. “I got another one coming in ’09, yeah! That’s what’s up!”

“Right now, I’ll tell you first, I’m working on an album with Damian Marley, and we tryin’ to build some schools in Africa with this one, and trying to build empowerment,” he said. “We’re tryin’ to show love and stuff with this album. So, the record’s … all about really the ‘hood and Africa also as well. That’s coming out real soon.”

No release date yet, but the rhyme legend is looking tentatively at this spring.

“Too early to tell the title or anything like that,” he said. “Shout out to my man Jr. Gong, we getting it in right now.”

Nas was guest at L.A. Reid’s post-Grammy party. We’ll give you one guess which label the album is coming out on.
