Despite being the long time musical icon he has been, Nas has a deep reverence and passion for film making. The New York MC believes that film making is his “calling” as it has always been a dream for him to work on films. Nas gets to showcase his passions in the recently released film “The Land”. Not only was Nas the executive producer for the feature length film, he was also the producer for the soundtrack of the movie as well.
The rapper from Queens not only shares his life experiences through music but he also conveys his message through clothing. Nas gets the chance to show the fashion world his insight on the world around him through his upstart clothing brand “HSTRY”. Filled with plenty of ideas and experiences, Nasir Jones will have plenty of new content to look forward to coming soon. Even at the age of 42, Nas shows no signs of letting up on making his impact on our culture and society today.
