GRAMMY-Award winning rap legend Nas has revealed the tracklist for his new album, King’s Disease II, out this Friday, August 6 at midnight EST via Mass Appeal. The album features collaborations with Eminem, EPMD, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, YG, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Hit-Boy, and more.
King’s Disease II is a sequel to Nas’ GRAMMY Award winning album King’s Disease, which was released in August 2020 to rave reviews.
In March, Nas scored his first ever GRAMMY Award for “Best Rap Album” with King’s Disease. The project marked Nas’ first new album in two years, and was produced entirely by Hit-Boy (JAY-Z, Beyoncé, Travis Scott). Additionally, Gabriel “G Code” Zardes served as the album’ s co-executive producer.
NME called King’s Disease “a stately and royal return to form for rap’s original scholar.” Consequence of Sound also said of the album, “King’s Disease delivers a feel appropriate for the times and hits the mark as being one of the better rap albums of the year.”
Following his 2018 studio album, Nasir, and 2019’s compilation The Lost Tapes II LP, King’s Disease features appearances by Charlie Wilson, Anderson .Paak, Big Sean, The Firm, Lil Durk, and A$AP Ferg, among others.
Back in May, Nas, Mayor Bill de Blasio, LL Cool J, Fat Joe, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., New York State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, City Council Member Diana Ayala, numerous city agencies, and hip hop luminaries took part in the official groundbreaking event for the first phase of Bronx Point. The event took place on May 20, at the future home of Bronx Point at 50 East 150th Street in The Bronx.
