The Queensbridge rapper details the upcoming sequel to his Grammy-winning 2020 album, King’s Disease.

Nas and Ms. Lauryn Hill are getting the band back together.

25 years after the release of their hit collaboration, “If I Ruled The World,” the duo is reuniting for “Nobody,” a track off the upcoming Nas album, King’s Disease II. The reveal arrived on the newly-released tracklist for the sequel to the Queensbridge rapper’s Grammy-winning 2020  album, which was announced just last week. Ms. Hill is featured on a prestigious roster for the King’s Disease follow-up. Shared in an Instagram post this morning (see below,) also includes appearances from Eminem, EPMD, YG, Charlie Wilson, BLXST, and Hit-Boy, who once again serves as executive producer on the album along with Nas.

The King’s Disease II announcement landed at the end of a month in which multiple rarities from the rapper’s catalog have resurfaced. As a part of the It Was Written rerelease, Nas retouched a nearly 30-year-old freestyle with a little help from Freddie Gibbs and Cordae. Another track, “Real N***s,” was uploaded to Youtube a few weeks back, providing a glimpse at a short-lived feud with Tupac, who, in the last few years of his life, was sending shots at damn-near every rapper of import.

Last year, Nas took home the first Grammy of his career with King’s Disease after 13 prior nominations, dating all the way back to 1997, when he earned his very first nod for “If I Ruled The World” with Ms. Hill. Could he go two-for-two with a sequel? Suppose we’ll see.

See the full tracklist for Nas’ new album, King’s Disease II, below. Hold tight for the project’s release this Friday, August 6th.
