Nas is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential hip-hop artists of all time. Nas went from being the King of New York to the Emperor of Miami this weekend. He headlined a banger of a show to cap off the Formula One event in town and crushed it.
The rapper took the stage on Sunday at Carbone Beach, where the entire show took a trip down memory lane to some of his early hits from the ’90s. The performance included a slew of ‘Illmatic’ tracks that the crowd seemed to enjoy in what appeared to be a fairly intimate setting.
In terms of the audience, it was as star-studded as they come. DJ Khaled, Venus Williams, Jamie Foxx, Hailee Steinfeld, Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz, Busta Rhymes, Lindsey Vonn, Kevin Love, LeBron James, Rich Paul, Maverick Carter, Meek Mill, Timbaland, and Karrueche Tran were among those in attendance.
Nas performed to the audience throughout his set, all while holding a beverage in his hand. It appears to have been a boozy affair, as almost everyone seemed to have their own cocktail. It was definitely a great way to end the week.
Nas’ performance ranks right up there with Travis Scott’s show from Saturday night, where the guy rocked the mic at full volume for the first time since Astroworld. If there was any doubt before, it’s gone now… Miami was the place to be. Check out the video below.
