Over the weekend, Hennessy V.S. celebrated brand ambassador Nas for his birthday at Drais Nightclub in Las Vegas where he hit the stage for a special performance. Following his set, the liquor company presented him with a cake and bottle parade to kick off his 42nd birthday.

If you're wondering where Nas has been lately, he's seemingly focused on a slew of side projects.

As we told you earlier this summer, Nas has invested in a high end New York fried chicken eatery, Sweet Chick. He has also been hitting up several spots in the US to promote a range of limited-edition soda cans on behalf of Sprite that feature inspirational lyrics by Drake, The Notorious B.I.G., and Rakim. The 16 can designs are dubbed the "Obey Your Verse" Lyrical Collection.

He's a busy brotha, it's nice to see that nothing is slowing him down.

Emmy-awarding winning casting director and producer Robi Reed (The Best Man, Soul Food, For Colored Girls, Love Jones) and her #ReedForHopeFoundation hosted the 13TH Annual Sunshine Beyond Summer Celebration at a private mansion in Woodland Hills, CA over the weekend.

The Reed For Hope Foundation and its successful Love Healthy initiative were the focus of the party. As soon as guests arrived, they were asked to get health screenings and to take the “Love Healthy Pledge for Wellness.” There were even blood pressure checking points and heart rate machines.
