Watch Nas Perform “Illmatic” in Full at Coachella


In celebration of the fast-approaching 20th anniversary of Illmatic, Nas performed the entirety of the album last night at Coachella. Nas also brought out his once-rival Jay Z to perform the Nas-sampling track “Dead Presidents.” Thankfully Nas didn’t perform “Ether,” otherwise Jay Z’s appearance could’ve been somewhat awkward.

Watch the entire performance above.

    Best there is, best there was, the best there ever will be…

    Have Nas and Jay-Z ever shared the stage before? Obviously they’ve long put the beef behind them, putting out songs together and hitting up each other’s parties, but I still felt like this was some monumental shit that went down last night

    Didn’t they get together for some charity show at Carnegie Hall a few years back?
