At the age of four Nas picked up his first instrument (trumpet) and began to play. By the age of nine he began to be influenced by the emerging genre of rap and began to write his own songs.

Nas his parents divorced in the mid 80s which prompted Nas to drop out of school in the 8th grade. Nas dedicated his whole life about music bringing his friend Will Graham into the mix as his DJ. Nas first settled the name Nasty Nas but later changed it to just Nas. He first got attention in 1991 when he performed in Main Source’s Live. With this performance he got the attention of many people and started to grow awareness. In 1992 after securing a record deal with Columbia he released his first single ‘Halftime’. The single was in instant success and the word about Nas spreaded fast.

In August 2011, Nas released his first single from ‘Life is Good’, called ‘Nasty’.
