One of hip hop’s most talented rappers was born today. I haven’t been a Nas fan since the beginning because I was too young and my parents regulated what touched my ears. But once I grew up a little bit and heard ‘If I Ruled The World’, I was sold and never looked back.

Nas has provided me (and the rest of the world) with quality bars for what seems like forever. and he will doesn’t look a day over 30! In recent years, Nas has flexed his investor muscles, becoming the face of Bevel Shaving System and investing in Tristan Walker’s Walker & Company Brands. His company has also invested in Rap Genius, Lyft, SeatGeek and Dropbox. Mr. Jones is also and executive producer and the man behind the raps on the Neflix Original Series, The Get Down – which is pretty close  to perfect show.

 

 

‘Bridging The Gap’ ft. Olu Dara (Nas’ daddy) is tied with ‘One Mic’ as my favorite Nas song.

 

‘Bye Baby’ is just so honest. Whoo Lawd!

 

Nas, thank you for so many years of great music and Happy Birthday!!
