When the first installment earns you a Grammy, why not come back for Pt. II? Earlier this year, Hip Hop celebrated alongside Nas as the rapper was bestowed his first Grammy win for his Hit-Boy-collaborated effort, King’s Disease. The Rap legend has been long praised in the industry as one of the greatest emcees to pick up a mic, so the Grammy was just the icing on the cake of a successful career.
Nas returned on Friday (August 6) with King’s Disease II, an album where the rapper and Hit-Boy work together as executive producers, and while the world may be captivated by the release of Kanye West’s Donda, Nas comes through with a certifiably distinguished record. Appearances include looks from EPMD, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, YG, Hit-Boy, Blxst, Charlie Wilson, Eminem, and his “If I Ruled the World” collaborator, Ms. Lauryn Hill.
