Escobar season begins.
Nas returns with “Ultra Black,” the first single off his upcoming album King’s Disease. Produced by Hit-Boy, the soulful slapper is a celebration of all things Black.
“Cash Money with the white tee and the Soulja rag / We goin’ ultra Black,” raps the hip-hop icon before declaring, “Black is beautiful!”
He also calls out Doja Cat, who has been accused of racism. “Unapologetically Black, the opposite of Doja Cat,” he adds.
Executive produced by Hit-Boy, King’s Disease arrives Aug. 21. The 14-track album marks the follow-up to 2018’s Nasir, produced by Kanye West. Last year, Nas released The Lost Tapes 2 featuring unreleased tracks from his last four albums.
