Nas has a surprise Christmas gift for his fans, a new album dropping Thursday evening at midnight.

The “Street Dreams” rapper revealed Thursday afternoon that he’s releasing a new album titled Magic featuring a collabo with A$AP Rocky and DJ Premier. After Nas executive-produced his two previous albums, King’s Disease and King’s Disease II, with Hit-Boy, the duo is working together again.

“3rd time in MAGIC,” Nas commented on Instagram as he posted a promo video that’s accompanied by Stevie Wonder‘s song “If It’s Magic,” from Wonder’s iconic 1976 Songs in the Key of Life album.

This year, Nas won his first Grammy, a Best Rap Album award for King’s Disease, after 13 previous nominations. The Belly star may win two years in a row, as King’s Disease II also has received a Best Rap Album nod. In addition, the 48-year-old rapper is up for Best Rap Song for “Bath Salts” with Jay-Z, from the late DMX‘s posthumous album, Exodus.
