AceShowbiz - Kanye West made a surprise appearance at the listening party for Nas' latest album, NASIR.
The hip-hop star was celebrating his eleventh studio album with a bash held in an empty parking lot under the Queensboro Bridge in New York City, when Kanye, who produced the project, arrived with wife Kim Kardashian.
According to Page Six, guests at the nearby Ravel Hotel were able to watch the party from their balconies.
Chris Rock, Pusha T, 2 Chainz and Mobb Deep's Havoc were also in attendance, with Kim's BFF's Jonathan Cheban and La La Anthony among those partying at the bash.
The guests often raised their phones to capture the moment as each track was played at the parking lot party, and for those who couldn't attend in person, they could join in online, where YouTube was live-streaming the event.
To coincide in with the release of his latest album, Nas has also released merchandise that was exclusively designed by "creative director" Kanye.
The eight-piece collection, available on Nas' online shop, features short-sleeved and long-sleeved T-shirts and hoodies. The clothes are emblazoned with 'Nas' on the front and 'Nasir' written down the left arm of each piece.
A range of graphics by Los Angeles-based artist Cali Thornhill DeWitt, including Nasir's album cover, also features on the merchandise, according to Billboard.
Vinyl records and CDs are also available through the shop, and all purchases come with a digital download link of Nasir.
