Nas was originally scheduled to appear as one of Nicki Minaj’s guests during her headlining set. As a result of theopinions of Peter Rosenberg, Mr. Jones was awarded his own set to fill in for Young Money’s decision to pull off of the bill. Nasir graced the stage with Lauryn Hill in tow.
In a brief interview with Rap Up, Nas addressed a few key topics. He began by sharing his experiences of performing in front of the tri-state area, along with both reuniting with L-Boogie and the Nicki Minaj vs. Hot 97 square off.
