NAS has emerged as Hip-Hop’s most trending artist this week. Five days after the the release of King’s Disease III , the Brooklyn legend has everyone talking. KDIII is the sixteenth studio album and the God MC once again has delivered an instant classic.
The album has received critical acclaim and further expands the catalog of one of Hip-Hop’s most iconic artists. Nas shows no signs of being irrelevant despite what 21 Savage has to say. King’s Disease has been a thrilling trilogy and the third installment is a great testament to his reign as Queensbridge’s finest.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The album consists of 17 tracks in total. Nas & acclaimed producer Hit-Boy team up to perfectly display that he is still a force to be reckoned with behind the mic. He reintroduces himself in “Ghetto Reporter” rapping The audacity, masterfully crafted these classics So naturally, had to be Nasty back at it They argue KD1, KD2 or Magic, what’s harder when KD3 go harder than all of them?
It doesn’t take a genius to know that Nas doesn’t miss. Fans are stuck between tracks like “Legit” with the dope sample from The Five Heartbeats and “I’m on Fire” that has hints of both NBA Jam & Street Fighter that makes heads nod in unison. Nas can still go and to receive another gem in KDIII is a blessing and we should enjoy it!
In no particular order, Nas is in my top 10 list. I’ve listened to him since Illmatic and he’s been a huge influence on the game and the music industry. I’m three days and several takes in to King’s Disease III and my official pick is “Thun”. It’s the sample of “The Bridge is Over” from BDP and the lyrical prowess of Nas over the track that solidifies his spot on my list as greatest of all time.
