During the second annual Vibe Impact Awards ceremony last night, J. Cole paid homage to his idol, Nas, in a heartfelt speech.
J. Cole delivered a powerful and touching speech dedicated to one of his dear icons Nas in a small room of close friends and acquaintances of Nas himself . Nas was seated in the table just in front of the podium at Vibe magazine’s Awards ceremony during the Grammy Weekend Festivities.
Watch the 10-minute speech below.

Perhaps the most anticipated track from Big Sean‘s forthcoming Hall Of Fame album is the Nas and Kid Cudi-featured track First Chain and here is your chance to hear it before the album drops next week. The No I.D.-produced track features Big Sean rapping on the hook along with a couple nice verses from Nas and Cudi. Pre-order the LP here.
One of the standout records from J. Cole’s new album Born Sinner was Let Nas Down, which was about Cole letting Nas down a couple years back with his Work Out single (see our review for more about the track). Now, Nas jumps on the track for the remix to let Cole know that he “Made Nas Proud.” This is pure greatness.
Legendary Queens rapper Nas has landed the number 4 spot on MTV‘s Hottest MCs In The Game list. His latest album, Life Is Good, sold over 500,000 copies and was proclaimed Album Of The Year by some.
Not only did Nas drop potent stick-to-your-rib singles like “Daughters,” “The Don” and “Bye Baby,” he went to great lengths to craft memorable story-driven videos to match. ” ‘The Don’ was a great visual, ‘Daughters’ was a great visual, ‘Nasty’ was great and I think with this record coming off of Distant Relatives,nobody expected this,” pointed out MTV Programming VP Yomi Desalu while referencing the mixed reviews surrounding Nas’ Damien Marley collaboration album in 2010.
Meek Mill unleashes his brand new single Maybach Curtains from his forthcoming debut album Dreams & Nightmares. The LP drops on October 30th.
