Nas performs Illmatic with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center: Watch

When Nas was just 19 years old living in the projects of Queens, he composed what would become one of hip-hop’s defining masterpieces, Illmatic. To mark the album’s 20th anniversary, the MC re-envisioned it for one of the most venerable stages in the country, performing it alongside the National Symphony Orchestra at Washington, DC’s Kennedy Center. 130 more words

ナズ, 「イルマティック」ライヴ、TV放映

Black History Month – 1

Nas Live from Kennedy Center

2月はブラック・ヒストリー・マンス、「黒人の歴史月間」です。

昨晩、PBS TV(日本のNHKにあたります)でラッパー、ナズの2014年にワシントンDCで開催された、「Illmatic」20周年記念ライヴが放映されました。それも、ナショナル交響楽団の生演奏つき、という豪華版です。オリジナル・レコーディングの哀愁漂うシンプルなビーツに比べ、厚みのあるシンフォニーをバックでラップするナズはまた格別。タキシード姿で登場したナズ、20年前の「イルマティック」アルバムと同じ曲順でパフォーマンスを繰り広げました。リアル・タイムで聴いていたあの頃が懐かしい………..。
