Nas returns with “Ultra Black,” the first single off his upcoming album King’s Disease. Produced by Hit-Boy, the empowering anthem is a celebration of Black excellence.

“Pitch black like the night, I’m ultra Black / ‘Sanford and Son’ reruns, jokes are Black,” raps the hip-hop icon.

Executive produced by Hit-Boy, King’s Disease arrives Aug. 21. The 14-track album marks the follow-up to 2018’s Nasir, produced by Kanye West. Last year, Nas released The Lost Tapes 2 featuring unreleased tracks from his last four albums.
