It’s been a while since the living rap legend Nas released an entire album. The rap veteran who is around since almost 30 years is facing new times, with a changed game. The track business is further on the rise, while the concept of albums appear to become out-dated and social media platforms like Tik Tok are the new hit-making machines. The New York rapper still sticks to his oldschool straightforward, thoughtful and introspective lyricism combined with melodious, boom-bap sounds. “King’s Disease” is the title of his newest project featuring artists like Charlie Wilson, Dr. Dre, Big Sean and Anderson .Paak. The track with soul singer-songwriter .Paak also known under the alias Breezy Love Joy is called “All Bad” and is an uplifting, funky tune, very much other than the title would suggest.
