Following two albums – one Grammy-winning and the other Grammy-nominated – Nas and Hit-Boy are returning with a new project. On Thursday (Dec. 23), Nas revealed that Magic, his and Hit-Boy’s next joint effort, will hit streaming services at midnight tonight (Dec. 24). The 9-song offering will see production from Hit-Boy, as well as the legendary DJ Premier and a vocal assist A$AP Rocky.

MAGIC is in the air,” Nas captioned an Instagram post announcing the effort. “Midnight ET brand new music to vibe to.”

Last year, Nas and Hit-Boy came together to release King’s Disease, which went on to win Best Rap Album at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards, marking Nas’ first-ever Grammy win in his 30-plus-year career. This August, the power duo struck again with their sequel album, King’s Disease II, which is also nominated for Best Rap Album at the upcoming 2022 Grammys.

I feel like every song we make, without even consciously doing it, we’re trying to make it better than the last,” Hit-Boy told Complex about his and Nas’ chemistry earlier this year. “It’s just already embedded in us to do that. I feel like as long as we keep taking that approach, it’s going to get crazier and crazier…”

“I keep seeing every day like, ‘Damn, how would y’all top KD 1 (King’s Disease) that y’all won a Grammy for? This is even better.’ That’s a good feeling, and it lets me know that the chemistry is legit,” he continued. “I feel like we caught [that chemistry] quick… [and] the challenge of outdoing ourselves, I feel like it’s only getting better every time we create and I’m just looking forward to seeing what that’s going to bring our way.”
