Nas tour venues
Nas TicketsIt took more than "just a little bit of beef" with gangster icons to get Nas to the stardom of rap history. He built his lyrical range during a time when hip-hop was, through the help of major labels, being taken out of the streets. From Illmatic to God's Son, controversy surrounds his lyrical style. Here's one artist who never dabbled much in the electronic, auto-tone flares of the early 2000s. In holding true to his b-boy stance, Nas is still touring the world and giving fans the chance to see him one last time.
Nas: "I Know I Can - Be What I Wanna Be"Respectable humor, poetic talks with mom and showcasing his own father on trumpet are just some examples of his expressive palette. There were rules to be broken and standards to be set during Nas's claim to fame. He never foresaw the career boost he'd gain while being involved in a dramatic "battle" with rapper Jay-Z. The scuffle certainly put more attention on the artist's then Stillmatic LP. Nas's comeback, "I am the truest. Name [one] rapper that I ain't influenced," posed a simple argument that couldn't be checked. The rapper's start into music gave him the perfect angle to then become one of the most highly respected writers of his time. He would see his second release go to double platinum in as little as two months. It Was Written was the hit produced by Columbia Records. The label's aim was to guide Nas into an international scene, and that is exactly what happened. He's even ranked by MTV as among the greatest MCs that hip-hop ever produced.
