NAS ANNOUNCES ‘KING’S DISEASE 2’ WILL ARRIVE SAME DAY AS KANYE WEST ‘DONDA’

Nas Announces 'King's Disease 2' Will Arrive Same Day As Kanye West 'Donda'

Nas has announced a follow-up to his Grammy

Award-winning album King’s Disease. On

Thursday (July 29), the veteran Hip Hop

artist revealed the cover art for King’s Disease

II along with a release date of Friday (August 6).

 

“We’re back in business!” he wrote in the caption.

“King’s Disease II • 8/6.”

 

August 6 is also the same day Kanye West is

supposed to deliver Donda — but everyone knows

how quickly that could change.

 

King’s Disease II will serve as Nas’ thirteenth

studio album alongside classics such as

1994’s Illmatic and 1996’s It Was Written. Despite

the Queensbridge native’s extensive discography,

2021 marked the first time he’d won a Grammy

Award in the Best Rap Album category.

 

Even though he was up against other celebrated

projects such as Royce Da 5’9’s The

Allegory and Freddie Gibbs & The

Alchemist’s Alfredo, he still walked away

victorious.

 

 

The project debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200

with roughly 47,000 total album-equivalent units

sold in its first week. Despite the Top 5 debut, only

one single from the album charted on the

Billboard Hot 100 — “Spicy” with Fivio and Ferg,

which squeezed in at No. 96.

 

The excitement for a sequel is palpable in the

comment section, with Hit-Boy, Ludacris, Justin

Timberlake, Steve Lobel and Carmelo Anthony

among the many who weighed in. Nas is Back.
