Hackney Weekend 2012


Sunday 24 Jun 2012 1Xtra Stage

Straight Out The Dungeons Of Rap

Consistently regarded as one of the most important voices in hip-hop, Nas remains relevant and engaging twenty-one years after his earliest lines on Live at the Barbeque.

Once hailed as the "new Rakim", the New Yorker, originally known as Kid Wave, has captivated rap fans across the globe since his sophisticated street poetry and fluid rhymes first surfaced on 1994's much celebrated debut Illmatic.

Production work from the likes of Dr Dre, Q-Tip, Kanye, Pete Rock and The Alchemist saw seven further solo albums unleashed ahead of 2010's Distant Relatives collaboration with Damien Marley.

Recent tracks, The Don and Daughters, have whetted our appetite for album number ten Life Is Good. The new LP, which includes guest spots from Tyler and Frank Ocean hits stores only a few weeks after the East Coast royalty comes to East London. For everybody in Hackney, the world is yours.
