New York rapper Nas looks like he’s going to be first in line when Paranoia hits store shelves this Friday. The hip-hop veteran has co-signed Dave East‘s long-awaited studio effort.

Nasty Nas went to Instagram Wednesday (August 16) to show East some support.

Earlier in the day, East blessed hip-hop heads with a sneak peek at his project’s star-studded tracklisting.

Recently, Dave East talked about trying to get Nas and music mogul JAY-Z to collaborate on one of his future tracks.

“Nah,” East said when asked if both rap gods would collaborate together on his Paranoia debut album. “That’s an idea that I let both of them know and yeah we’re gonna finessed this. I’ll be the first one to do that from anywhere. I don’t know another artist that got both JAY and Nas on a record. We gonna see what it do. We’re gonna keep our fingers crossed.” (Billboard)

Last week, East revealed his long-awaited Paranoia album would finally arrive August 18.
