Nas and Eminem’s first collaboration arrived Friday as part of Nas’ new album King’s Disease II.

On the Hit-Boy-produced track “EPMD 2,” which also features the legendary duo, the “Rap God” shows humility as he raps about wanting to be compared to greats like JAY-Z, Lil Wayne, and Big Daddy Kane.

“I just pray for the day when I’m able to say that I’m placed with the greats / And my name’s with the Kanes, and the Waynes, and the Jays,” he raps.

Marshall Mathers also gives props to rap kings including Dr. Dre, Kanye West, Drake, and Nas himself. “And the Dres, and the ‘Yes, and the Drakes / And the J Dillas, Jadas, Cool Js, and the Ras / And amazin’ as Nas is, and praise to the Gods of this / Shout to the golden age of hip-hop and the name of this song is…”

Despite Eminem’s 25 years in the game, the lyrics surprised some fans, who already consider the Detroit rapper to be one of the GOATs.
