Dressed to kill in a black tuxedo with his bow tie undone, Nas took a moment to thank everyone in the room for attending the One Mic: Hip-Hop Culture Worldwide Festival and expressed his disbelief in how far he has come in music. The crowd raised their glasses of Nas' signature Hennessy drink, the Big Apple, and toasted the rappers history making performance. With 20 years in music, Nas is the epitome of the Hennessy mantra, "Never stop Never settle".

Adding to his accolades, Nas has embarked on year two of the "Wild Rabbit" campaign with luxury cognac Hennessy. His voice is currently being featured in "The Man Who Couldn't Slow Down," a 60 second television spot about the record-breaking feats of Sir Malcolm Campbell.

I cant believe Illmatic is 20yrs old, I remember walking up and down my neighborhood with my friends and a boombox bumping “Represent”, “World is Yours” and “Life’s a Bitch”. It was such a classic album and highly regarded as on of the top 5 albums of all time. Hip-hop as we know it would be so different if not for that album. Yes, I know I am showing my age, but guess what? I. Don’t. Care.
