Earlier this week Nas announced that his series of albums with Hit-Boy was coming to a close. He released the third album in the Magic series and his 6th Hit-Boy produced album overall last night. Its predecessor Magic 2 dropped just a few months ago and delivered a pretty high-profile feature in 50 Cent. Magic 3 also brought a pretty big name along for the ride. When Nas revealed the tracklist to the project a few days ago fans were hyped to see that Lil Wayne popped up for a feature.
Turns out, Lil Wayne’s performance lived up to the fan expectation. TheHipHopWolf Instagram account collected some tweets praising Wayne for his appearance on the album’s track “Never Die.” “Wayne completely f*cking snapped on Nas album. my god,” one of the fans they found tweeted. “I’m a huge nas fan but Wayne ate his lunch” and “Nah Wayne lost his miiiiiind on this Nas song lmao,” two other fans agreed. The reception of the album as a whole seems to be very positive with some fans calling it the best in the Magic series to date. Check out some of their reactions below.
