The Queens-Fontana duo released Magic, their third joint effort, before Christmas last year, containing nine cuts and some help from DJ Premier and A$AP Rocky for the standout track “Wave Gods.” On Monday, the Queens-Fontana duo revealed another video from the upcoming set titled “Ugly,” which is also produced by Corbett, and depicts both everyday people and celebrities who engage in violence in our neighborhoods:
This video for “Ugly” is provided by AWGE, and features Nas and Hit-Boy riding around in a limo with some ladies. As the video moves through the song’s journey, fast moving shots appear that help to put the lyrics to life, from images of active military to more abstract ones such as a room filled with faceless people.
A few years ago, Nas and Hit-Boy released King’s Disease, their first official full-length offering that featured 13 songs featuring Hit-Boy, Charlie Wilson, Big Sean, Lil Durk, A$AP Ferg, Anderson .Paak, Fivio Foreign, Brucie B, Don Toliver, and The Firm, which saw Nas return alongside AZ, Cormega, Foxy Brown, and Dr. Dre. King’s Disease had a tremendous impact, winning the Grammy for Best Rap Album for the duo. As well as Magic, 2021 was also marked by the release of an official sequel to King’s Disease, which featured contributions from A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, EPMD, YG, Eminem, and more.
