Album Review: "King's Disease" by Nas (9/10)

Distributed by: Mass Appeal

Producers: Hit-Boy, Various

Nas releases his 13th studio album, King’s Disease, which is predominantly produced by Hit-Boy, a stellar, hitmaking producer. Lyrically Nas comes across as a young, wise, matured emcee, with more years of greatness to experience. From “Car 85,” to “Full Circle,” to “The Cure;” Nas personifies an artist whose goal in life is to steer his audience into critical thinking and to living a meaningful life. Nas continues to get better with time. He shows his fans the meaning of being a King and the steps one needs to avoid dwelling with the Disease.
