Nas and Hitboy have had a historic run since joining forces in 2020, and with the release of Magic 3 later this week, the duo will finally call it a day and retire their partnership.
On Tuesday (September 12), the Queens MC revealed that the third and final installment of the Magic trilogy will drop on his birthday, September 14, less than two months after Magic 2 was released. This will also mark the end of his collaborative tenure with Hit-Boy that inserted him into the commercial Hip Hop space for the second time in his illustrious career.
“I want to thank everyone for taking this ride with @hitboy & I,” Nas wrote on social media. “It’s been nothing short of Magical!”
Soon after, Hit-Boy confirmed that it will be their final drop, writing: “Nas is dropping his last Hit-Boy produced album on his 50th bday this thursday. Magic 3 [crying emoji, three magic wand emojis]. Those are tears of joy btw. thank you to any and everyone who has listened and supported the movement.”
