VIDEO+ALBUM RELEASE PARTY: Nas, Kanye debut ‘Nasir’ at star-studded Queens album release party

“Nasir” came home to Queensbridge Thursday night.

Nas held a listening party for his new album, “Nasir,” about an hour before the clock struck midnight on its official release date, in Queensbridge Park, a stone’s throw from the public housing project where the “Illmatic” rapper grew up.

Under the Queensboro Bridge, recording industry bigs, social media influencers and celebrities — including Kim Kardashian and 2 Chainz — took in the new Kanye West-produced tunes.

The seven-track record is the fourth G.O.O.D. music release West helmed in as many weeks. It follows Pusha T’s “Daytona,” West’s own “Ye” and “Kids See Ghosts,” West’s collaboration with longtime protege Kid Cudi.

“Nasir” is the Queens native’s first album in six years.

The rapper was accused earlier this year of domestic violence by his former flame, singer Kelis — claims the emcee left unaddressed Thursday night.
