    Nas premieres new Kanye West-produced album Nasir at listening party, streaming on Youtube

    Kanye West’s summer of good music continues.

    The musician held a listening party in New York for the new album from Nas, titled Nasir, produced by West.

    While West’s own album ye and Kid Cudi collaboration Kids See Ghosts streamed over the Wav application, the Nas event was broadcast by YouTube.

    Unfortunately, technical problems were still an issue, with Nas having to restart the stream twice. Watch the stream below.



    Nasir marks Nas’s first album since 2012’s Life is Good. On the first track, which features “Ghost Town” singer 070 Shake, the artist makes various political statements, including: “Abe Lincoln did not free the enslaved/Progress was made.”

    The second track features West, while the fifth features West and The Dream, Nas rapping on the same track: “If Starbucks is bought by Nestle, please don’t arrest me/I need to use your restroom/And I ain’t buy no Espresso.”

    Nasir marks the fourth album produced by West to be released in as many weeks. The first was Pusha T’s Daytona, followed by West’s ye, and Kids See Ghost’s self-titled record. Next week will see Teyana Taylor’s album touch down.

    It's finally out. Off of a first listen I really enjoyed it. Probably the best out of all these 'Ye releases.

    I like this in general, but on a couple of beats Ye should've put some more effort. His sampling is just too lazy on songs like e.g. Adam and Eve. Production-wise this is the worst out of the 4 ye projects so far, even though it's still hiding a couple of gems.

    As a huge Nas fan I feel like I'm the only one who isn't feeling this.

    I’ve listened to this a few time’s and it’s a good album, but it leaves a bad taste in my mouth due to the Kelis interview.
