Nas' long-awaited 11th album, Nasir, has finally arrived -- and the hip-hop community is thrilled.
The Kanye West-produced album -- which features guest appearances by Pusha T, Mobb Deep's Havoc and Chris Rock -- debuted in full late Thursday (June 14) at a listening party in Queens, New York, hosted on YouTube by Mass Appeal. Soon after, numerous rappers, producers, songwriters, and music execs were praising the seven-song album on social media.
"It’s 630pm, do you know where your Nas album is?" Roots drummer Questlove tweeted Saturday. And Diddy simply tweeted in all caps: "NASIR."
