Nas’ 11th studio album, Nasir, has arrived on TIDAL and Apple Music.

The Queens legend unveiled the project on Thursday night (June 14) at a waterfront listening party under the Queensboro Bridge in New York City.

Executive produced by Kanye West, the seven-track album boasts contributions from The-Dream, Puff Daddy, 070 Shake and The World Famous Tony Williams. It also boasts production from Che Pope, Benny Blanco, Cashmere Cat, Plain Pat, BoogzDaBeast, Andrew Dawson and E*vax.

Super producer Mike Dean was evidently working on it until the 11th hour. In an Instagram video posted on Thursday, he wrote, “Nas. Coming soon.”

Reactions to the album have been mixed — some praised it for the superior production while others chose to boycott it after Nas’ ex-wife Kelis accused him of physical abuse in a recent interview.

Nonetheless, Escobar season has arrived.
