New York Rapper Nas is set to perform a one-off show in his home city where he will perform his 'King's Disease,' trilogy of albums in its entirety.

The news comes after the rap legend released 'King's Disease III,' produced by Hit-Boy, on Friday.

Shortly after its release, the album was placed at number one on the iTunes music charts.

Riff magazine rated the Mass Appeal-released album 9/10 in its recent review, arguing that 'Nas maintains his reign with ‘King’s Disease III.’

Describing the project, the magazine details that 'Nas spends most of this album reflecting on his youth and rise to superstardom, the naïveté of new artists and the ever-present significance that mortality holds over all of us.'

Nas announced that the special performance will take place on the 24th February 2023 at the famous Madison Square Garden venue in New York city.

The rapper took to social media to announce the news to his fans, sharing a concert poster on Instagram with the following captions:

'King's disease Trilogy - one night only @thegarden 2.24,' the post said.

This latest 17 track album, which also includes a bonus track, sees Nas perform without any additional features, in a change to previous albums.

It remains to be seen whether Nas will bring out any of those artists that performed on 'King's disease' one and two at his one-off show.

The album trilogy, which has seen Nas link up with producer Hit-boy for all three albums, has seen the rapper become more relevant in the hip hop landscape once again, in a career that started in the early 1990s.

The initial King's Disease album saw Nas awarded with the first Grammy of his rap career, with the honor of 'Best Rap Album' in 2021.

The second album in the series peaked at number 3 on the Billboard 200 album charts in the USA.

Last year Nas and Hit-boy teamed up again to release the album 'Magic' in a surprise move.

The rapper previously spoke to radio DJ, Ebro Darden, on Apple Music about how great a producer he believes Hit-Boy is.

'He’s like my Quincy [Jones], you know what I mean?” Nas said.

“So I feel like the next thing I do, if I was to work with Hit-Boy on the next thing I do, I think that we might do something that is going to be magical,' the rapper added.
