Nas drops star-studded ‘King’s Disease II’ album

Hip-hop legend releases sequel to his decorated 2020 album.

Nas released the follow-up to his Grammy-winning album King’s Disease with King’s Disease II on Aug. 6.

With a runtime of 52 minutes, the 15-song album features executive production from all-star producer and frequent collaborator Hit-Boy, with intriguing guest verses from several eras and sub-genres of hip-hop.

Tuesday morning (Aug 3), Nas took to Twitter to drop the tracklist for King’s Disease II. With fifteen tracks, the album is executively produced by Nas himself and Hit-Boy, who executively produced the first rendition of King’s Disease. The features are intriguing, including hip-hop legends such as Lauryn Hill and Eminem, as well as more recent rap stars like Blxst, A Boogie wit da Hoodie and YG.


Nas looks to keep his hot streak going with the sequel to his successful 2020 album. On July 29, Mass Appeal Records, the label founded by Nas in 2014, announced he would be releasing King’s Disease II on August 6.

There is no confirmed tracklist yet for the record, but fans should anticipate excellence with this new record as he has continuously set a high standard for himself. His thirteenth studio album King’s Disease from last August included high profile features like Anderson .Paak and A$AP Ferg and dynamic hits like “Replace Me” with Big Sean and Don Toliver.

The album won the Rap Album of the Year Grammy at the 63rd annual Grammys. After Nas’ stellar, legendary career, this was his first time winning the award.

In 2021, Nas released an extended edition of his classic 1996 album It Was Written with two new tracks, as well as releasing a decades old snippet as a song with Freddie Gibbs and Cordae.

Now, almost a year after his Grammy-winning record, Nas returns with its second rendition next Friday.
