Included with the collectible will be different removable accessories that pay homage to some of Nas’ iconic album covers, including the orange cap from Stillmatic and the Egyptian pharaoh mask from I Am “Nas. Truly honored to collaborate with the hip-hop legend I regard as the greatest of all time,” Steven Cartoccio said. “Preorders open Thursday 12/1 at 11 am est on shop.massappeal.com Much love to @nas and everyone at @massappeal + @hiphop50 for making it happen.” Earlier this month, Nas released his King’s Disease III album, completing a trilogy collaboration with Hit-Boy.
