Hit-Boy has offered fans details about the process of King’s Disease III with some help of his son.
The day before (November 11) the Grammy-winning producer was able to celebrate the release of the fourth album he has collaborated with Nas by sharing pictures and video of his 2-year-olddaughter Chauncey Hollis III.
The caption also revealed that the son was not just present in the studio every day during filming, but he also received the first credit for production through the project.
One of the clips shared by Hit-Boy is the moment his son sang to the tune “Once A Man, Twice A Child.” Watch the video below.
The 2-year-old also has his own distinction as Nas the sole vocalist for King’s Disease III in addition to Hit-Boy, who is the sole vocalist, and who has several advertisements. As the duo, who won Grammys in 2004, released the tracklist of their latest effort they were greeted with speculation that the album would feature some features in spite of the absence of any guest artist names listed included on the list.
The absence of any features will be a marked departure from the previous two volumes of The King’s Disease series, as the original in 2020 and the 2021 sequel featured a variety of guest appearances that were a buzz, like Lauryn Hill Fivio Foreign Eminem and an Reunion from The Firm featuring AZ, Cormega and Foxy Brown.
King’s Disease III is the conclusion to an amazing run, which has been hailed by many as Nas the best album to date. When promoting King’s Disease II Nas, the Queensbridge veteran attributed the success to Hit-Boy who he called the Quincy Jones to his Michael Jackson.
“He’s like my Quincy [Jones], you know what I mean?” Nas said. Nas. “So I’m thinking that what I’m going to do next, and if it were to collaborate with Hit-Boy for the next project I’m involved in, I believe that we could do something that could be awe-inspiring.
“I think what we have is magic,” He added. “I think if we do another one, I’m excited about that idea, but you know, we’re celebrating this one now.”
The two would actually create magic after the King’s DiseaseGrammy victory with an album that would earn Nas his most successful chart debut in the year King’s Disease II made it onto into the Billboard 200 chart at the 3rd position.
Although King’s Disease III will bring this series to an conclusion, Nas and Hit-Boy have yet to announce if they’ll continue working on future projects. Nas the The Illmatic rapper has hinted that he’s still thinking about the possibility of a similar partnership together with DJ Premier on the track “30,” which features on this new album.
The idea of an Nas or DJ Premier album got around when the two pals talked about wanting to release the album during an interview interview Scratch in 2007. But, over the years since then, nothing has happened other than Preemo saying that it would be released through different interviews.
