The story of the famous rapper Nas is a similar story and inspiration to thousands of musicians that are rapping today in the streets of Colombia. These young people dream of playing for fame and to emulate one of the largest revolutionary music idols of this century.
Best moment: Arcade Fire's post-closing parade. In typical Arcade Fire fashion and more reminiscent of a Vietnam protest than a Coachella headliner, they refused to let the midnight sound cutoff cramp their style.
A high school dropout that grew up in the Queensbridge projects, Nas preached to the world what the reality was like in his universe. Now, 20 years later, Illmatic is regarded as one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time.
