Cormega "The Realness 2" (Album Stream)

The Realness II is Cormega’s sixth studio album and the follow up to his 2014 album, Mega Philosophy. It is also the sequel to his 2001 debut, The Realness. The album was first announced during the summer of 2022, with the lead single, "Essential," released on August 12th. The album has features from Hip-Hop legends such Nas, Havoc of Mobb Deep, and Lloyd Banks, with Nas being one of Cormega’s most frequent collaborators, dating back to the days of The Firm. One of Queens' most consistently dope and thought-provoking lyricists, his roots date back to the days of the park jams. I'm super glad Mega and Nas were able to repair their differences and continue to show their growth as artists and men. It's also rumored that this album was so taxing on Cormega to make (the pressure/shadow of The Realness being the main reason) that he will never do another sequel again lol. He definitely put together a great project, dig into it below and cop the physicals in stores now.
