Kanye West‘s two-year-old promise to Obama has finally been delivered.

With Nas‘ new album Nasir having made its debut last night in Queens, New York (the album has still yet to hit streaming services), a certain promise Kanye made to Obama has been completed.

As Business Insider notes, West has finally delivered on his promise with Nasir, Nas’ eleventh studio album and his first since 2012’s Life Is Good. West served as executive producer on the album, producing the project’s seven tracks as well as rapping on two of them. The album also features appearances from The-Dream and 070 Shake.

It’s unknown if Obama will actually listen to the new Nas album or not. After all, West has spoken of his love for Obama’s successor, Donald Trump, both on and off music, and we can only imagine that hasn’t sat well with the previous president.

Nasir was premiered at a listening party underneath the Queensboro Bridge on Thursday night. Prior to the album’s listening event, Nas released the cover art for the project. It features a striking image of a group of black boys standing in front of a no loitering sign. Two of the boys are holding machine guns.
