Nas is one of the most iconic lyricists to ever grace the microphone. He is a gifted poet, confessor, agitator, metaphor master, and tongue twisting genius. Ever since he dropped his 1994 album Illmatic, the hiphop game changed forever and people to this day continue to refer to it as one of the greatest hiphop albums of all time. An album which he released before he was legal drinking age.

Three decades on, Nas continues to be the explosive, outspoken and brutally candid rapper we all love with timeless hits like If I Ruled the World, N.Y. State of Mind, The Message, Nas Is Like, It Ain’t Hard To Tell, Made You Look, and so many more.

How do you like that for a hiphop show? This is the opening night act the an already stacked lineup on the OLG Bandshell Stage. We’ve already announced Sam Roberts Band with Bedouin Soundclash, and Five Alarm Funk on Saturday, July 25, and TLC on Sunday, July 26!
