The rise of the gangsta rap king
Growing up in New York City, Nasir Jones had an early education in jazz, blues, and hip hop. By the time he was a teenager, he was already passionate about performing. In the early 1990's he started making waves in the hip hop community, and when he released his debut album in 1994, he left the music industry slack-jawed in amazement. Illmatic was crowned as one of the best hip hop albums of all time, praised for its poetry and insight. Nas began the crossover into the mainstream with "If I Ruled the World (Imagine That)" featuring Lauryn Hill. Not everyone was hypnotized by Nas though, and in the early 2000's the feud between Nas and Jay-Z burned hot. The feud resulted in Nas's 2002 album, God's Son, which was celebrated by fans and critics. But eventually even Jay-Z was won around. Since then, Nas has collaborated with superstars like Justin Timberlake, Damian Marley, Justin Bieber, Mobb Deep, and Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Nas's lyrical mastery, his ability to delve into history, allegory, and philosophy, has established him as a hip hop god. Get your cheap Nas tickets here and come pay tribute to this rap genius!
