Nas has finally won his first every Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. He’s one of the greatest lyricists of all time & truly deserves to have a Grammy as one of his accolades. Congratulations @Nas #GRAMMYs pic.twitter.com/KiMKEWH1YJ

King’s Disease debuted within the top 10 when it was released in August last year, making it Nas’ fourteenth top-ten album in the United States.
Despite only just getting a Grammy, that’s a pretty impressive track record.
