Just in time for Christmas Nas and Hit-Boy have surprisedly dropped another new album ‘Magic’ today. It’s just been three months since Nasty Nas released his 11th studio album which was also the second installment to the Queens rapper’s first-ever Grammy win ‘King’s Disease’.
Magic includes nine tracks and features from Asap Rocky and legendary producer DJ Premier with whom Nas has made his career-defining song ‘N.Y State Of Mind’.
Preemo’s appearance on the track titled ‘Wave Gods’ is the first time that both New York’s veterans have linked up in 11 years. Apart from collaborating with Premier, Nas is also taking it back to the early 90s with the album as the pictures used for both album cover and tracklist include the rapper’s photoshoot for his debut album Illmatic.
Nas first teased this album in an interview with Apple Music’s Ebro as he responded to the question if there will be the third installment of Hit-Boy assisted ‘King’s Disease’ “I think what we have is magic. I think if do another one I’m excited about this idea”.
