In other Nas-related news, King’s Disease III is out and the legend and Hit-Boy are running a victory lap on their trilogy. The new album will made a top 10 debut, behind 30,000 album equivalent units, according to Hits Daily Double.

The new album will make a debut at No. 9, just ahead of GloRilla’s debut EP, which 27,000 units will make a No. 10 debut. Earlier this month, Nas released the music video for “Michael & Quincy” from King’s Disease III.

Nas and Hit-Boy both appear in the Sarah McColgan-directed video for “Michael & Quincy.” Nas and Hit-Boy released this song and accompanying music video as a tribute to the two biggest homies in music, Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones, working without ego and pushing a notion as far as they could. It’s especially appropriate that this tribute appears on King’s Disease III, Nas and Hit-third Boy’s entry in the King’s Disease series, given Michael and Quincy collaborated on three famous albums.

Nas has announced his first-ever show at Madison Square Garden. The event is set for  Friday, Feb. 24. Tickets for the show are currently available via Ticketmaster.

Earlier this month, Nas released his King’s Disease III album, completing a trilogy collaboration with Hit-Boy. Nas won his first-ever GRAMMY Award in 2020 for King’s Disease. He was nominated for both the first and second King’s Disease albums in the Best Rap Album category.

You can hear the new album below.

Today In Hip Hop History: Nas Dropped His Fourth Album ‘Nastradamus’ 23 Years Ago

Screen Shot 2022 11 23 at 9.18.35 AM

On this date in 1999, Queensbridge King Nas released his fourth full length studio LP entitled Nastradamus on the Ill Will/Columbia imprint. The 15 track album was due to be released as a follow up to his previous I Am LP, but due to bootlegging, Nas added additional recorded songs specifically for this project.

With singles such as “Project Windows” featuring the legendary Ron Isley and the crossover single “You Owe Me” featuring Ginuwine, the album was certified platinum by the RIAA within a month of its release. Production from the likes of Timbaland, Mobb Deep’s Havoc, Premier and Dame Grease, this album appealed to the streets and the charts.

Salute to Nas for this valuable piece of Hip Hop history!

Fivio Foreign and Kodak Black Call Out 21 Savage for Controversial Nas Comments

21 savage kodak fivio

21 Savage has shaken up the hip-hop community with his controversial comments regarding Nas’s relevancy in the current day and age. 21 made his statements in a Clubhouse chat last weekend. “I don’t feel like he’s relevant,” 21 said. “I don’t feel like Nas is relevant,” he repeated.

His remarks have caught the attention of both newer rappers and veteran rappers. Recently Kodak Black and Fivio Foreign have called out 21 for his comments, saying that the Her Loss rapper is wrong about his statements and should not disrespect a legend of Nas’s stature.

“Talking about, ‘Oh, Nas irrelevant.’ How the fuck Nas irrelevant, hoe?” Kodak Black said. “How the fuck Nas ain’t relevant, homie? Nigga smoking dick! Did a fucking Drake [album]. We salute Drake, we love Drake, okay, whatever.”

Kodak continued, “Nas that n-gga, homie. I know I can (I know I can) / Be what I wanna be (Be what I wanna be) / If I work hard at it (If I work hard at it) / I’ll be where I wanna be. You crazy, boy! The fuck? Nas that boy. Homie, you tripping. Nas that n-gga, boy, you tripping, boy. The fuck?”

Fivio Foreign even chimed into the conversation, backing Nas and saying that the legendary rapper got a Grammy for Kings Disease II, which Fivio himself was featured on.

“That nigga Nas did too much to be disrespected like that. That’s big bro where I’m from you know what I’m saying. I was just on his album. He just got a Grammy for the album I just was on.”

Fivio continued speaking and explained why Nas will never be irrelevant. “Nah, that’s like saying it’s like you a legend you can do what you want, you come back when you want, you leave when you want. That’s what it is. He can do what he want.”
