On Friday, April Fools’ Day, the rapper announced that he will be releasing a deluxe edition of his debut album Montero tonight with superstar guests including Rihanna, Dua Lipa, Doja Cat, Tyler, the Creator, NBA YoungBoy, and Saucy Santana.
“I am so excited to announce that MONTERO DELUXE (featuring Rihanna, Dua Lipa, Doja Cat, Tyler the Creator, NBA Youngboy, Saucy Santana, and more!) WILL BE YOURS TONIGHT at 7P EST!” he tweeted along with what appeared to be an album cover.

Fans were excited until they realized that today was April Fools’ Day and that it may just be another one of Nas’ elaborate trolls.
“I was completely confused until I saw the date,” tweeted one fan, while another added, “knew it was cap when I saw rihanna name.”
i know this is a joke but i have a feeling you have a collab with all of these people

While fans remain skeptical, the NBA YoungBoy and Saucy Santana collaborations may be real. Last month, Nas teased the pair of tracks, “Late to the Party” with YoungBoy and “Down Souf Hoes” featuring Santana.
Montero was released in September featuring collaborations with Doja Cat, Elton John, Megan Thee Stallion, and Miley Cyrus.
On Sunday, Nas is set to perform with Jack Harlow at the 64th annual Grammy Awards in Las Vegas where he is nominated for five awards including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year.
