Nas closed day 2 of Coachella with some help from Jay Z and Diddy.
Epic Show! Congrats to Nas. He’s as cool when you meet him in person as he is on stage. I met him in Boston.
Always good to see him and Hov together. I remember the time when we all had to chose sides. Now we don’t have to.
They kind of remind me of Magneto and Professor X. Genius rivals with a mutual/friendly genuine respect for one another. Neither one can deny the other.
This is great for the art.
I got into Nas fairly late back in 1996 when I was 13. I’ll never forget one of my class mates in the 7th grade came over and asked me if I listened to him. My answer was NO at that time. You other guys in your early 30s can remember that back then, it was Tupac, Tupac, Tupac.
As soon, as I got my hands on Nas’ Illmatic (tapes back then), he’s been my favorite rapper ever since. It’s been nice to ride with him ever since and see his growth as a man and an artist.
He was waaaaay ahead of his time even back then. We still haven’t seen another 19 year old do it like Nas did in 94. I doubt I’ll ever see it again in my lifetime.
Be easy ladies and gents. Fuck good, be great. Pe@ce.
