Nas and Hit-Boy Release The Video "Michael and Quincy"

The King’s Disease III track “Michael & Quincy” by Nas and Hit-Boy now has a music video.

The most recent song taken from the third installment of their King’s Disease series has Nas spitting the track in the booth and hanging out on a bicycle on a frigid Queens, New York, night.

The new video is the first to be released from the album, which was released this week and debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard 200 following a competitive first-week sales battle with GloRilla. The album sold about 29,000 album-equivalent units in its first week.

In addition, Nas’ 16th top 10 album, King’s Disease III, ties him with JAY-Z for the most top 10 albums by a rap artist.

With the release of his second album It Was Written in 1996, Nas made his first appearance in the top 10, while JAY-Z achieved the same feat with his own sophomore album In My Lifetime, Vol. 1 in 1997.

From trading diss songs like “Supa Ugly,” “Takeover,” “Ether,” and “Last Real N-gga Alive,” Nas and Jay-Z have come a long way. Despite their long-standing reconciliation, Nas recently admitted to Trevor Noah of The Daily Show that Hov occasionally jabs him casually.

Nas stated, “I just revealed the record tracklist, and he just posted pictures with all his Grammys.”  “Shout out to him.”

The most recent song they worked on together was DJ Khaled’s “Sorry Not Sorry” in 2021, which necessitated Nas rewriting several bars.

“Alright, I’m just here tweaking lines and shit,” he told Hov over the phone. “I’m in here, curating, rewriting four bars here and there… Oh, no no no. I’ve gotta come back! [Laughs] Yo, bro, this is one. The queen at the end, the harmonies, that gave me chills … this is definitely one for the books.”

Nas will play the full King’s Disease trilogy in its entirety during a one-night-only performance in New York City. The unique concert will occur at Madison Square Garden on February 24.
