Not long removed from their most recent team-up, Nas and Hit-Boy have announced their final collaborative album together.

Today, the artists announced that following July's Magic 2, they will cap their creative partnership with Magic 3 on Thursday, September 14 — which also happens to be the iconic MC's 50th birthday.

"I want to thank everyone for taking this ride with @hitboy & I," Nas wrote in sharing the above cover art on Instagram. "It's been nothing short of Magical! Forever Grateful, Enjoy!!"

In a respective announcement, complete with a crying emoji, Hit-Boy clarified, "Those are tears of joy btw. thank you to any and everyone who has listened and supported the movement."

Upon the release of Magic 3, Nas and Hit-Boy's final tally will come to six full-length albums delivered in a span of two years. Along with 2021's Magic — which Exclaim! deemed "immaculate" in a 9/10 review — the duo also shared a concurrent King's Disease series of albums, with King's Disease II arriving in 2021, followed by King's Disease III last year.

Next month, Nas will perform in Canada as part of a co-headlining North American tour with Wu-Tang Clan. Find his Magic 3 announcement below.
