Nas recently treated fans to a performance at Hennessy and FADER Magazine’s special collaborative event on the second night of Art Basel. The New York legend decided to share the stage for a moment and invited fellow wordsmith, Busta Rhymes, to accompany him. Take a look as Busta grabbed the microphone and praised Nas’ legacy in Hip Hop and his importance to the culture. As the rapper continued his speech, he decided to crown the Queensbridge emcee as being the “King of New York.”
Take a look at this short new trailer for the upcoming film titled Black Nativity. Legendary Hip Hop artist and Queensbridge native Nas will star in the Hollywood remake of Langston Hughes play alongside seasoned actors such as Forest Whitaker and Angela Basset. Singers Jennifer Hudson, Mary J. Blige and Tyrese also make an appearance in the film.
Nearly over 1,500 party goers flocked to a private residence in Bermuda Dunes in Indio, California during Coachella Music Festival weekend for the highly anticipated Hennessy V.S Presents DETAILS @ Midnight party hosted by Nas. The lavish estate was decorated with Tipi’s, food trucks and a digital graffiti station. DJ POLITIK started off the night spinning old school and new hip hop as guests sipped on Hennessy V.S specialty mixed drinks and got the crowd ready for a performance from DEV. Shortly thereafter the G.O.A.T himself, Nas came on for a surprise performance and had the crowed swaying and singing as he grabbed the mic and started off with “‘If I Ruled The World.” He kept the packed party going as he sung a handful of songs to keep the party going until early in the morning. Additional celebs in attendance were Josh Henderson, Karrueche Tran, Elizabeth Olsen, and Rumor Willis.
