Following the release of his best-selling #1 new album Life Is Good, and a standout performance on this year’s Rock the Bells tour, hip-hop’s most influential MC has announced an exclusive show at Radio City Music Hall on New Year’s Eve. Fans can purchase tickets beginning this Friday, September 14 at noon- the same day Nas will be celebrating his 39th birthday. Elle Varner has been confirmed as support.

A hip-hop icon since the early 1990s, Nas emerged from the Queensbridge neighborhood of Long Island City, a hotbed of rap artist since the '80s. The son of jazz trumpeter Olu Dara, Nas has since gone on to sell over 20 million albums worldwide over the span of his legendary career, and has acted as an ambassador for hip-hop culture throughout the globe. The first full-length album by the poet and rhyme-master Nas arrived in 1994, the RIAA platinum Illmatic. Since then he has released 9 solo albums and 3 compilation albums that have garnered 11 Grammy nominations and certified either double-platinum, platinum and gold.
