Nasir Jones, better known as Nas, was born in 1973 in New York. For quite a long time so far, he’s been called a god of hip hop. He recorded his Illmatic in 1994 where he proved himself to be a perfect street storyteller. Soon after that, he woke up famous when his second It Was Written became #1 in the Billboard and a bunch of new rappers took his sound as a paragon. Together with his countrymen from Quinsbridge, he donated a new voice to the East Coast rap while his new enterprise with Dr. Dre became one of the superprojects on 1997.
Nasir Jones was born in Long Island. He was a son of a famous jazz composer Olu Dara. Nad hasn’t even finished school and left when he was in middle school. At the age of 9 he got interested in and inspired by the rap music. In the mid-80s, he joined one of the street bands of his homeplace Quinsbridge. When Nas got the microphone, he was telling the real sorties of the black people living the street life. And these were real heart touching stories that did not resemble the common newsreporters’ phrases that came to those districts for a couple oh hours, interviewed a black to Latin kid about their hard life and left. These were the descriptions of the real troubles.
In 1989, Nas meets a producer who helps him to record his voice with Main Source. This was a good promotion, and Nas got a chance to sing at New York streets. Along with this, he was selling his demos hoping to get a contract. But sudden death of his best friend and the murder of his brother broke his will. He could probably leave the stage forever but for MC Serch who was pretty sure that Nas had already signed a contract long time ago. But when he got to know that he had none and, moreover, was going to finish his musical career, he decided to interfere. Serch immediately invited him to record his voice for his new single and made a Zebrahead soundtrack together with Nas. So, in 1993, he signed a deal with Serch’s label and soon became a priority artist.
Now he could record his debut album with any producer, so his Illmatic was warmly met by both mainstream and deep underground. The New York Times wrote that Nas is using not only black facts, but also humor and humanity. He is telling about violence without praising it. It his verses, the real life beats the circumstances.
