New York rapper Nas is proving you can mix business and friends effortlessly. The hip-hop veteran has announced longtime pal N.O.R.E.‘s 5E album is dropping on his Mass Appeal record label next week.

Nasty Nas went to Instagram this week to break the news to his 4.3 million followers.

Earlier this month, Nas celebrated the 20-year anniversary of N.O.’s Noreaga debut album.

Hours prior to Nas’ salute, N.O.R.E. went to Instagram with a grip of celebratory posts.
