As folks were waiting to enter the now mythical world of Kanye West’s Donda, we were content either way here at Today’s Hip Hop, for one reason: It’s Esco Season. August 6th brought us a new Nas Album “Kings Disease 2”, and unsurprisingly, it didn’t disappoint. As an avid Nas fan, even I can admit that Nas has stumbled on albums before, (Wasn’t the biggest fan of Nastradamus, NASIR etc), but it seems that Nas has found a sound to once again elevate him back to his rightful level of artistry. Kings Disease proved that last year, but it’s sequel cements it: Nas has hit his groove in this third act of his career, and we’re getting classics as a result.
“In Kings Disease 2, Nas once again links with Hit Boy for that soulful, nostalgic sound that compliments his current OG status”
