Nas officially dropped his Kanye West-produced Nasir album today, which was released to the public via a listening party under the Queensbridge in Nas’ hometown Queens, New York City.
The star-studded event welcomed a slew of celebrities, tastemakers, journalists and Nas & Kanye West’s inner circle, including Pusha T, 2 Chainz (who dropped his new track “Bigger Than You” featuring Drake and Quavo on the same day), Chris Rock, Big Boi, Kim Kardashian West, LaLa Anthony, Casey Neistat, Jungle — Nas’ older brother — AZ, producer Large Professor and more. Some notable highlights include a very happy Kanye and Nas amidst the crowd jamming to the track livestream, which broadcasted the entire album on a loop throughout, as well as Kim Kardashian and co. flaunting atop an army truck.
Also on display at the military-themed event was the Nasir merchandise line, which included exclusive Queensbridge listening party pieces as well as branded hoodies and T-shirts, which are also available to purchase online now. Attendees were given the first crack at the merch line, which quickly was depleted within the first 30 minutes of the show.
