Nas had the world on notice with the listening party and live stream of his 11th studio album Nasir, produced entirely by Kanye West, on Thursday (June 14) ahead of a slated Friday release. Hours went by before the album was uploaded to the various streaming services well after the patience of long-waiting fans had been tested.
Much like with Kid Cudi and Kanye West’s Kids See Ghost album, an epic listening party was held for the record in Queens with Yeezy, his wife Kim Kardashian, Pusha T, 2 Chainz, and several media outlets in attendance. The early returns on the record were largely positive and there was a heavy expectation that the record would be available to the masses at the turn of midnight.
However, it would take nearly all of Friday (June 15) for the record to find its way to TIDAL, Spotify, and Apple Music with the first of the grouping not seeing the album until after 10:00 PM EST.
