As part of the Bacardi Rums “Like It Live, Like It Together” event, Nas performed at the Gansevoort Plaza in NYC this afternoon. Up top, Nasir runs through, “It Ain’t Hard To Tell” and “Made You Look”.
Although Nasir scrapped the Lost Tapes 2, he’s ready to get the ball moving with his next album, Life Is Good.
