A debut Ibiza gig for Nas, a one-ff experience for us.
Following an in-theme, hip-hop warm up set by resident DJ’s Patrick Nazemi and Danny Beck,
Nas performed his classic and iconic ‘Illmatic’ album in front of a hip Ibiza Rocks crowd to celebrate 20 years since it’s release.
Writing the album back in 1993, the American rapper has ‘been out the hip-hop game’ for sometime now but always dreamed of coming to a ‘beautiful Island’ like Ibiza growing up in New York City. He dedicated his permormance to ‘the boys locked up at home’.
After sampling some fizz at Blue Marlin and dancing the night away at Pacha Flower Power, Nas was accompanied by Skrillex, Chase & Status, Shy FX and comedian Russell Kane who were amongst the movers and shakers in the hotel.
Performing popular tracks such as ‘NY State Of Mind’ changing it to “Ibiza State Of Mind”, ‘The World Is Yours’ and ‘If I Ruled The World’ (imagine that), Nas, wearing a colourful t-shirt, spat his urban lyrics and his flow was still impeccable.
