Nas celebrates his birthday on Sept 14

Virgo season has returned.

Nasir Jones was born on September 14, 1973, in Queens, NY. The “Ultra Black” rapper is the son of Jazz musician Olu Dara, who played on his classic album Illmatic. He is one of the most prolific lyricists in rap and he has proven to be a shrewd businessman. He shared his birthday with friend and collaborator Amy Winehouse.

He is known for celebrating his birthday in style. Known to ball out on any regular day, it makes sense the QB rapper would go all out on his born day. He is currently riding the wave of the HIT-BOY assisted King’s Disease album so you know he’s going to turn up this year for his 47th.

Happy Birthday, Nas!
