Bringing the sounds of NYC live and direct to the Balearics this summer, genuine hip-hop legend Nas will make his Ibiza debut for a storming outdoor set live under the stars on the famous poolside stage at Ibiza Rocks on9th July 2014.
Following his triumphant return to the stage at Coachella 2014 with guest appearances from fellow hip-hop icons Jay-Z and P Diddy, the Queens-raised rap superstar will head to the White Isle in July for an unmissable headline performance at Ibiza Rocks – a show that promises to be one of the highlights of the summer. Nas will perform his game-changing 1994 debut Illmatic in its entirety as part of the 20th anniversary celebrations of the seminal release.
Dubbed a poetic master by music fans and critics alike, this is a rare opportunity to see one of the world’s most respected hip-hop artists perform a musical masterpiece- that’s spawned a string of tribute albums – live and up close in a unique, intimate setting. Expect an unforgettable set jam-packed with rap classics including album highlights N.Y. State of Mind, The World Is Yours and Life’s a Bitch, to name just a few.
The headline show is part of the 20th anniversary celebrations of Illmatic taking place this year, which also sees the record released as a special collectors’ edition, titled Illmatic XX, teamed with the launch of a feature-length documentary film, Time Is Illmatic.
