Nas Defining Moments
On any list of the greatest hip-hop artists to ever do it, his name is mentioned. Whether Top 5 Dead or Alive, Top 3 of All Time, there is one name that is almost never disputed… Nas.
And just like the hip-hop culture that bred him did last month, today, the God MC is turning 40. He has been celebrating his special day with parties in New York and Las Vegas. He has been celebrated by his peers with shout outs and write-ups by magazines and websites. It is all well-deserved.
With 13 albums under his belt, Nas is more than an emcee; he is an anchor of this culture. He is one of our greatest living legends.
Complex Magazine kicked off “Nas Week,” with content about the man, the artist. Here is their unique original video feature, ”Nas: Defining Moments.”

On Thursday night, Hennessy hosted an intimate dinner and exclusive after party with Nas in celebration of his 40th birthday. The rapper and his closest friends and family dined at New York hot spot, Avenue, where DJ Mos and D-Nice provided music for the night.
A number of A-listers attended the big birthday bash, including Mariah Carey, Jermaine Dupri, Olivia Munn, Estelle and Anthony Mackie,
Tyson Beckford, Melanie Fiona, Tristan Mack Wilds, Q-Tip, Cassidy, and Pusha T.
“Night 1!!!! My 40th Anniversary,” Nas wrote on Instagram Thursday night. The rapper included a photo of himself posing with a group of friends.
Mariah tweeted, “Fun in the city, “slinging it up”…Nas’s 40th.” The songstress posted a photo of herself wearing a black dress and of course, paired the staple fit with a blinged out sling. Carey suffered a shoulder injury back in July while filming a music video with Jeezy in New York.
