Unidentified men broke into Nas’s home in Calabasas, California, while he was in New York City celebrating the release of his album “King’s Disease” series.

Nas’ team was reportedly alerted to the burglary via a Ring camera installed in the rapper’s home. It caught the men leaving the house, and the team immediately contacted the police; however, the burglars had already fled when police officers arrived on the scene.

As the LAPD launched an official investigation into the case, they noted that no one was present at the time of the crime, but the burglars ransacked and ravaged the rapper’s belongings.

The items were stolen as of this writing, and their costs are unknown, as the rapper is expected to return to his home and inventory the stolen items.

According to TMZ, the Ring camera captured the men leaving the house with “at least two bags” full of Nas’ belongings.

Nas was celebrating the release of his “King’s Disease” albums together with Hit-Boy, who co-produced the album series.

During the party, Nas paid tribute to fellow rapper Takeoff, who was fatally shot and killed last November 1. Fortunately, Nas was not at home in Calabasas when the burglary occurred. There was no mention of whether the men were armed or not.

The 49-year-old rapper said:

“We’re trying to tell these people out here, man, we’re here for a purpose. We can’t be destroying each other over bullshit. Look at these little brothers and be like don’t shoot; don’t throw your life away. It ain’t worth it. There’s something to live for, something to be here for.”

“King’s Disease III” was released on November 11, the same day Takeoff was laid to rest, which is likely why he took the time to pay tribute to the late rapper.

The album featured 17 songs and was co-produced by Nas and Hit-Boy. The album “King’s Disease III” is distributed by Mass Appeal Records. Hit-Boy produced the album’s full-length music. Meanwhile, Hitboy and Nas executive produced this version of the album.
