nas – king’s disease iii

With varying commercial and artistic success, Nas has always sounded certain. He is as sharply defined in his own vision as any hip-hop artist, which makes his singular place in rap more of a throne than a lonely corner. King’s Disease III is the third instalment in a progressively robust series. Featuring 100% Nasty Nas, it is expertly judged in self-analysis. The beats too pound with complete aesthetic clarity, yet still manage to feel proportionate to the artist’s wingspan through hip-hop. When artists slip in quality, it’s often a burden of the past jamming their creative arc. Nas has caught up with his remarkable self without taking advice.
