The king of New York spits heat on a bonus track, plus we review ‘King’s Disease’.
Decking the track with a plethora of classic Nas ‘isms, the artist has fun on a beat with fellow rappers ASAP Ferg and Fivio Foreign.
It has been a minute since Nas released ‘King’s Disease’, but a review is still in order despite dropping the ball on this one. So in light of this and giving it a hard listen, a brief wrap up is below.
With appearances from Big Sean, ASAP Ferg, Anderson .Paak and Charlie Wilson, the New York veteran continues to make moves and attract the best of talents to new projects for a well-noted endorsement of his craft.
Though the message was heard loud and clear, his previous collaboration with Kanye West could have been better. It lacked the essential Nas formula and freedom he usually expresses. It felt closed and restricted, and oftentimes too Kanye.
‘King’s Disease’ is a marked improvement filled with scorching hot mech and raw drenched lyricist exhibitionism that Nas executes well through a volley of high-class rhymes.
A highly recommended outing that rents nothing and claims much, ‘King’s Disease’ is a worthy addition to the best albums of the year, reminding us that skill and tidy cuts still exist.
