Nas took to Instagram to preview his next single “Rare” off of his upcoming fourteenth studio album King’s Disease II.

The brief audio snippet came with a monochrome visual that scans around a crowd of men decked out in suits. Nas wrote in the caption that the track will premiere tomorrow on YouTube at midnight.

“Rare” is the fifth song of 15 total on the LP’s tracklist, which Nas shared on social media yesterday, featuring collaborations with Eminem, YG, Lauryn Hill, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and more. Surprisingly, long-time rappers Nas and Eminem have never spit bars on the same track.

“We are FINALLY getting an Eminem and Nas collab this week… 20+ years in the making,” one fan wrote on Twitter.


Co-produced with Hit-Boy, who also appears on the single “Composure,” the album drops this Friday, August 6.

Its predecessor, King’s Disease, arrived in August last year, and triumphed as Best Rap Album at the 2021 Grammys, the first of Nas’ awards at the ceremony.
