Yesterday, Nas kicked off the 20th anniversary for his classic album Illmatic with a brunch in Palm Springs. Check the pics of the fab event inside and read about the Made In America festival returning to Philly…
As Coachella wrapped up all the festivities for the first weekend of performances, Nas linked with Hennessy V.S to host an intimate brunch at the Ingleside Inn in Palm Springs. In case you didn’t know, Nas is the face of the Hennessy V.S “Wild Rabbit” campaign.
As the Queensbridge rapper celebrates the 20th anniversary of his debut album Illmatic, he performed tracks from the legendary album before a packed audience with guests including Lance Gross, Karrueche, Jermaine Dupri, Lil Romeo, Eva Marcille andDamon Wayans:

Kae was all smiles with her Hennessy drink in her hand. Kae has been living it up at Coachella along with her bestie Christina Milian, riding Spyders with friends and stocking up on free gifts.
Jermaine Dupri came out to spin on the ones and twos.
And sexy Lil Romeo was spotted shirtless as he walked around with a drink in his hand. Lil Romeo sure doesn't look so "lil" these days...
After headlining Coachella on Saturday, Nas treated guests to an exclusive sneak peek of the “Time is Illmatic” documentary. The film revisits the making of Illmatic and gives fans a look at what fuels Nas to continuously innovate and push himself. “Time is Illmatic” will premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival on April 16th.
In other festival news, you'll recall that Jay Z’s Budweiser Made In America festival was possibly moving from Philly to L.A....but it looks as if it will REMAIN in the city of brotherly love. Tickets are on pre-sale now. Nice!
