Watch Live NOW: Nas Listening Party For His New Album ‘Nasir’

Nas  released his first new album in six years. In anticipation, he’s confirmed a few more details, including the album’s title — it will be called simply, Nasir — as well as the cover art (see below). The full seven-track effort will be streamed in full tonight via Mass Appeal’s YouTube channel beginning at 9:00 p.m. EST. Presumably, it will be made available on digital streaming services such as Apple and Spotify a short time after.

Nasir was produced entirely by Kanye West. It marks the Queens rapper’s 12th album to date and serves as the follow-up to 2012’s Life is Good.

Earlier this week, Kanye shared the unofficial tracklist for Nas’ untitled album, which features songs named “Adam and Eve,” “I Can Explain,” “Simple Things,” “Bonjour,” and more. West also tweeted an image of the definition of The Seven Deadly sins, which could possibly be tied to Nas’ album or the reason behind G.O.O.D Music’s seven-track album roll out.
