In an exciting development for Hip-Hop fans, 50 Cent has revealed that he will release new music with Nas this Friday. The announcement was made on 50 Cent’s Instagram account.
The collaboration, “Office Hours,” is significant as it unites two of the genre’s most respected figures. Both artists are natives of Queens, New York, and have made substantial contributions to the music industry over their lengthy careers.
The upcoming track is expected to be featured on Nas’ eagerly awaited album, Magic 2, which will be produced by Hit-Boy.
50 Cent’s participation in Magic 2 is particularly noteworthy as it signals his return to the music scene after a period of focusing on his multimedia empire.
In a recent interview with Billboard, 50 Cent disclosed that he has been working on a new solo album with the assistance of Eminem and Dr. Dre, in addition to his collaboration with Nas.
While this is not the first time 50 Cent and Nas have collaborated, it has been over twenty years since their last joint project. They previously collaborated on the tracks “Too Hot” and “Who U Rep With,” which featured on 50 Cent’s 2002 mixtape “Guess Who’s Back?”
Their relationship, however, has not always been harmonious. In 2005, 50 Cent took a jab at Nas in his song “Piggy Bank” for getting a tattoo of his then-wife Kelis.
Details about Magic 2 are still under wraps, but the anticipation is building. With 50 Cent joining the roster, Magic 2 is set to be another landmark in Nas’ distinguished career.
