Is King’s Disease III a Modern Hip Hop Classic for Nas?
Without a doubt KD3 brings something new, yet faintly familiar to the table & raises the bar extremely high for MC’s in this era. Lyrical substance and stellar production is in short supply these days. Although to give credit, 2022 has been a great year for hip hop releases so far. Many new album will make contenders for album of the year, this project being one of them. Comparing this album to Nas’s prior classics like “Illmatic” would be silly in this day and age. What it DOES is shows that Escobar has gotten better with time. He’s more precise in his decision making, finding a partner that propels his career to new highs in Hit-Boy. Keeping the same essence as when he first got in the game 30 years ago. That alone on top of how dope the album is places it among hip hop royalty. Judging on whether or not it’s a classic solely depends on you as a listener. Make your own judgements below!
