Nas returns with his first album in two years, King’s Disease, as he aims to reclaim his throne. The new project is executive produced by Hit-Boy and includes lead single “Ultra Black.”
The 13-track compilation also features appearances from Charlie Wilson, Lil Durk, and Anderson .Paak. Again, Big Sean and Don Toliver team up with Esco on “Replace Me,” while Fivio Foreign and A$AP Ferg guest on the bonus track “Spicy.”
Nas also reunites with his Firm groupmates Foxy Brown, AZ, and Cormega, on “Full Circle” for the first time in over two decades. Previous, the hip-hop supergroup had released one album, The Album, in 1997 before dispatching.
While on an interview with Hot 97, Nas opened up about the follow-up to 2018’s Nasir.
“Most of us want to be kings and don’t realize what that entails or don’t realize what comes with it,” Nas said. “The title came before COVID was really huge. It had nothing to do with COVID, but it just worked.”
Nas added, “A lot comes with life, and if you wanna be the best you can be, it doesn’t stop with success.”
