Nas @ Rock the Bells 2011 (more by Dana (Distortion) Yavin)
Life Is Good for Nas. The rapper welcomed his 11th studio album, and first since his 2010 collaboration with Damien Marley, Distant Relatives, in July via Def Jam. Speaking of Nas collabs., he's also been working on an album with Common since 2011, called Nas.Com (pretty crafty title). Nas guested on Common's 2011 LP, The Dreamer/The Believer, in the form of a feature on the track "Ghetto Dreams." Stay tuned for more information on their new project.
Nas is continuing his good life streak with a fall US tour. That tour features support from Lauryn Hill on many of its dates, including the Chicago show at the Congress Theater on November 14. Tickets for that show go on sale this Friday (9/21) at 10AM CST.
