One of the Hip-Hop goats and prolific emcees, Nasir ‘Olu Dara’ Jones stage name Nas has stormed  Instagram to formally announce the release date of the MAGIC 3 album produced by Hitboy come Thursday,  September 14.

The King’s Disease rapper stormed IG, wrote and posted:

“I want to thank everyone for taking this ride with @hitboy & me. It’s been nothing short of Magical! The Album Drops On My Birthday. 9•14 at 9 PM. Forever Grateful, Enjoy!! Nasir Jones,” he captioned a blurry photo of himself. Fans were stoked to hear the announcement in the comments section. “Greatness. Nasir, a true representation of hip hop who is always doing it for the culture,” one fan commented. Another wrote: “What a great run. peace to the goat.”

Tellingly, it’s been a hell of a run. Nas and Hitboy are indeed the new ‘Gang Starr’. For three straight years now, this duo has been dropping back-to-back projects from dawn to dust resulting in a Grammy win in 2020 and a Grammy award nomination the following year.

Magic 3 comes just a few short weeks after Nas dropped the sequel. At the time, he commented on social media that he was in the midst of the best year of his life.
“I’m happy to be around making new music because I love it,” the Queensbridge rap icon penned on Twitter. “Having the best year of my life. I caught the Holy Spirit and I’m grateful to be giving it all to the world. Magic 2.” 

Magic 2 had guest appearances from 50 Cent and 21 Savage.
