Nas has released the sequel to his Grammy-winning album King’s Disease. The album features performances by Ms. Lauryn Hill, Eminem, YG, Charlie Wilson, and more. Hit-Boy co-produced the album, and features on “Composure.” Ms. Hill’s collaboration with Nas is one of her few recent musical outings, including recording a studio version of “Guarding the Gates” for the Queen & Slim soundtrack. The first single off King’s Disease II is “Rare,” which according to Pitchfork has a music video directed by Savannah Setten. The video for “Rare” sees Nas go back-and-forth between video and still photography, color, and black-and-white. Setten also directed a video for Baby Keem. Last year’s King’s Disease won Best Rap Album, beating D Smoke, Freddie Gibbs & the Alchemist, Jay Electronica, and Royce Da 5’9”. It was the rapper’s 14th nomination and first win. By the way, the traditional King’s Disease is gout.
