Nas Performs Songs From ‘Illmatic’ at Kennedy Center!
Nas (along with a 40+ orchestra & DJ Green Lantern) performed the entire album of ‘Illmatic’, as part of his 20th anniversary release of it at the One Mic Hip-Hop Culture Worldwide festival in Washington, DC. Listening to an orchestra piece together the instrumentation in the way the beats were made is breath-taking; there’s definitely nothing like it.
Check out Nas performing ‘One Love/Represent’ above. Don’t just watch it… just listen. In fact, just listen to the choir.
