Nas and Hit-Boy are paying homage to two musical legends — Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones — in their latest music video. Directed by Sarah McColgan, the “Michael & Quincy” visual sees the rapper-producer duo in a montage of clips around the city, from biking down the street to rapping in front of a luxury car covered in a plastic sheet.

Interspersed between footage of Nas are subtle tributes to the iconic legends the song is named after, such as a quick flick of Jackson performing his famed moonwalk on a staticky television screen.

“Nasty like Mike on the vocals, I overdub it / Bouncin’ off the wall, always startin’ somethin,’” Nas raps. “Behind the scenes of the “Thriller” video, big budgets / Moonwalkin’, smooth criminal talkin.’”

Jackson and Jones worked on three albums together, making this a fitting track to be included on Nas and Hit-Boy’s third King’s Disease collaboration, King’s Disease III. The album debuted on November 11, following 2020’s King’s Disease and last year’s King’s Disease II.
