Week 38: Nas
Rock The Bells 2011 features a certain rapper performing a certain famous album in full, and so I thought I should check it out before I saw the show (which they STILL haven't put tickets up for!) I actually saw Nas perform this month at Roots Picnic in Philadelphia, and I liked what I saw, and I want to go into my 2nd performance with a better knowledge of Nas' most famous album. Of course I am familiar with Nas' music, but I've never listened to an album of his start to finish, and could name you no more than 4 songs by name. I'm also looking for some lyrical redemption from last week, so hopefully this'll do the trick!
