Nas has announced a new studio album called King’s Disease, set for release next Friday, August 21, via Mass Appeal. The rapper has also shared the lead single from the record, ‘Ultra Black’, and it’s co-produced by Hit-Boy (who also serves as executive producer for the album) and Nipsey Hussle/Polo G collaborator Corbett. Check it out below.
Nas previously released the outtakes collection The Lost Tapes 2, which followed from his 2018 Kanye West collaborative album Nasir. The Lost Tapes 2 actually contained another collaboration with Hit-Boy titled ‘Royalty’, which also featured Frank Ocean. Back in June, he joined forces with Public Enemy, Questlove, YG, and more for a remix of ‘Fight the Power’ at the BET Awards.
