About Nas

Nas (born Nasir Jones) was just 21 years old when he released his classic debut album Illmatic. A representation of his life growing up in the housing projects of Queensbridge, New York, the album was hailed as an instant classic and propelled the young MC to the forefront of the rap scene.

During the '90s Nas remained one of hip hop's biggest artists. His follow-up albums It Was Written, I Am and Nastradamus were all hits, despite not receiving the critical acclaim afforded to Illmatic.

In 2001, however, spurred on by a feud with Jay Z, Nas returned to blistering form with Stillmatic. Since then he has achieved great success with the albums God's Son, Street's Disciple, Hip Hop Is Dead and 2012's Life Is Good.

A new album from Nas is reportedly done, with the artist just waiting for the right time to drop it.
