At the beginning of the month (February 2), PBS aired the legendary emcee Nas performing his classic album Illmatic alongside a symphony orchestra. The show was part of the station’s Great Performances series and took place at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Nasir Jones was backed by the National Symphony Orchestra.
Nas said “I worked on my thing. I worked on my craft and I stuck to it, I hope that you can look through the dream with me and see the journey I took to be on this stage with an orchestra.”
