Hip hop legend Nas gets his flowers when he’s alive as he is officially given the key to Queens.
The report notes that Nas was allegedly given the honor following a headlining performance for the Concert to Feed NYC at Queen’s Forest Hill Stadium, a charitable event with proceeds going to the City Harvest food rescue organization. In addition to Nas receiving the key to Queens, it was also decreed that September 23rd would officially mark “Nas Day.”
September 23, 2021 is now officially Nas Day in Queens, New York 💯🤎. Nasir Jones is not only God's son, but he's Queens' son. That's why @DRichardsQNS presented him with not just a proclamation, but also the Key to Queens borough tonight… pic.twitter.com/CIOeFT9Cvs
