HIP HOP GOES TO THE KENNEDY CENTER: Nas Wraps Up Two Nights Of "Illmatic 20" With The National Symphony Orchestra

Mar 31 | by Natasha

Who said hip hop couldn't make it this far?!  Nas celebrated the 20th anniversary of his classic Illmatic album with back to back sold out concerts at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.  And he slayed the stage with the National Symphony Orchestra. 

 

Deets inside...

Keeping it dapper in a black tuxedo with his bow tie undone, Nas hit the Hennessy V.S afterparty at the KC Cafe Saturday night to chop it up with a few folks and the Symphony conductor, Christoph Eschenbach.  He hopped on the mic and told the conductor he thought he would be "stuffy", but after only 1 day of practice before the big weekend, the NSO was anything but.

The 40-year-old was fresh off the stage after bringing some new ish to the Kennedy Center.  He performed every track off his classic album with the Symphony backing him, and it was history-making HOTNESS.

The weekend was all part of his One Mic: Hip-Hop Culture Worldwide Festival, in conjunction with the Kennedy Center, that he kicked off on the 25th and it runs until April 13th. 

And, by the way, he's still making moves as a spokesman for Hennessy.  He just embarked on year two of the "Wild Rabbit" campaign with the luxe cognac company.  And his voice is currently being featured in "The Man Who Couldn't Slow Down," a 60 second television spot about the record breaking feats of Sir Malcolm Campbell.

Making major moves quietly is so sexy....

Check out the afterparty pics, with DJ Beverly Bond spinning, and few videos below with "I Can", "One Love" and "Represent"
