Presumed to be the next single from the Queensbridge rapper’s recently released King’s Disease album, the trio were joined by fellow New Yorkers rocking masks and thoroughly enjoying being part of the moment. Even longtime friend and fellow Firm member AZ made an appearance.
“Nut crackers and Puré up in the Heights wit my Dominican brothers” #186 #Spicy @asapferg @fivioforeign_8fs #kingsdisease,” Nas wrote on Instagram Sunday (September 20).
The finished product would mark the second video to be released from Nas’ thirteenth studio effort, following “Ultra Black.”
While the “Spicy” collaboration has been lauded by fans, another Nas collab is earning high praise as well.
In a recent interview with HipHopDX, Black Thought recalled how he and Nas managed to team up along with Public Enemy, YG, Questlove, Enemy Radio’s Jahi and Rapsody for “Fight The Power 2020.”
“When I was tapped to jump on that record with people who I already had a relationship with like Chuck and Rapsody, as well Nas — who I’ve always wanted to jump on a record with, but he and I have only gotten to share the stage — it was an opportunity,” Thought said. “It was the same thing with YG. We’ve gotten to perform live together, but it was my first opportunity to jump on a record with him.”
