Nas will team up with DJ Premier to perform the entire "Illmatic" record live, in celebration of the classic album's 20th anniversary.
The 2014 BUKU Music + Art festival is upon us, and will feature a very special act. Nas is going to perform, and not only is he going to perform, but he'll be doing the entire, seminal Illmatic record in it entirety, back to front. A good way to celebrate the 1994 classic's 20th anniversary and an even better way to bring the house down for the festival.
Of course, that is saying quite a bit as the festival will already be featuring Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Tyler The Creator, Chance The Rapper, Pusha T, Danny Brown and Schoolboy Q. The two-day festival will take place in New Orleans on March 21st and March 22nd. You can check it out, here.
