Few of the huge names in American rap stand the test of time. Nas, however, is a rare commodity. Since starting his King’s Disease album series, this rap veteran has totally come to life. The third album in the series, Kings Disease III, is—like its two predecessors—conceived in close collaboration with producer Hit-Boy. This release is choral, multi-layered and introduces acoustic sounds whilst maintaining an old-school aesthetic. This balance is perfectly illustrated on the track ‘Legit’, where Nas questions the notion of legitimacy… Not even legends can rest on their past laurels. To remain legitimate, the rapper works hard, varying the rhythm of his flows and even introducing the gong bass drum on ‘30’, which is a tribute to the previous architects of Nas’ albums: DJ Premier and Pete Rock. The groove is heavy on ‘Recession Proof’, soft on ‘Reminisce’, disturbing on the political ‘Don’t Shoot’ and liberating and jazzy on ‘Get Light’. As always, Hit-Boy shines bright without ever encroaching on the rapper. That’s true precision. © Brice Miclet/Qobuz

Album Description

Few of the huge names in American rap stand the test of time. Nas, however, is a rare commodity. Since starting his King’s Disease album series, this rap veteran has totally come to life. The third album in the series, Kings Disease III, is—like its two predecessors—conceived in close collaboration with producer Hit-Boy. This release is choral, multi-layered and introduces acoustic sounds whilst maintaining an old-school aesthetic. This balance is perfectly illustrated on the track ‘Legit’, where Nas questions the notion of legitimacy… Not even legends can rest on their past laurels. To remain legitimate, the rapper works hard, varying the rhythm of his flows and even introducing the gong bass drum on ‘30’, which is a tribute to the previous architects of Nas’ albums: DJ Premier and Pete Rock. The groove is heavy on ‘Recession Proof’, soft on ‘Reminisce’, disturbing on the political ‘Don’t Shoot’ and liberating and jazzy on ‘Get Light’. As always, Hit-Boy shines bright without ever encroaching on the rapper. That’s true precision. © Brice Miclet/Qobuz

How Kanye West Turned Hip-hop on its Head

Over the last twenty years, Kanye West has consistently changed the course of rap music and influenced his era’s pop scene like no other. Collaborating with Paul McCartney, Rick Rubin, and Rihanna, he has both revitalized the careers of Jay-Z and Common and provided a platform for Kid Cudi and John Legend. Kanye West remains a major influence on artists such as Childish Gambino, Drake and The Weeknd. Cast yourself back to the career of an endlessly enigmatic artist.

Kendrick Lamar, an Autopsy of a Phenom

He is revered both by the mainstream and the underground. And rarely a rapper has gathered such unanimous support. But how did Kendrick Lamar manage to roll over the competition to such an extent? And his dominance could last for quite some time…

Nas, human after all

Nas became a legend at 20 years old. On his first attempt, this rapper coming from Queensbridge, New York, was already everything: an extraordinary technician, a striking narrator, a savior. But what happens next? How to evolve? How to surpass yourself when the industry regards you as the chosen one? How to age in a youth music when your first opus is your supreme work?
