DJ Jazzy Jeff was on hand to keep the party going while the Roots treated the crowd to a special performance. Additionally, a who’s who of hip-hop royalty showed up to show their appreciation for Nas according to a press release.
A celebration fit for a king, Nas, celebrated his 50th birthday at The Grill in New York City together with Hennessy.
As part of the monumental night, Hennessy commissioned artist, Kennedy Yanko, for a 1-of-1 tribute sculpture that was presented to Nas.
