Nas' "King's Disease" Has Strong Debut: First Week Projections
Despite some competition in the form of his eternal foe Jay-Z, Nas managed to score one of the strongest new albums of the week, leading sales projections in a tie for first place.
Releasing his new album King’s Disease, executive produced by Hit-Boy, Nas has yet another great body of work on his hands. The legendary rapper features Big Sean, Lil Durk, Anderson .Paak, The Firm (with a surprise appearance from Dr. Dre!!), and more. He was up against some strong rising talents, including Mulatto, and some returning veterans like Vic Mensa, but it looks like people tuned into Nas the most over the weekend, resulting in a strong first-week projection for his sales.
