Kanye West may have stole the show at Governors Ball Sunday night, but he wasn’t the only superstar to represent Hip-Hop at the annual festival. A day prior (June 8), rising star Kendrick Lamar and legendary Queensbridge native Nas took the stage at the jam packed Randall’s Island venue.
The Compton MC performed a list of noteworthy tracks from his critically acclaimed debut good kid, m.A.A.d city and features verses like A$AP Rocky’s “F**kin’ Problems.” He even dug into his discography to reintroduce “P&P 1.5” from his breakout 2010 mixtape, Overly Dedicated.
Nas pleased fans by running through a set of songs that included “It Ain’t Hard To Tell” and “Represent” from his undisputed classic album Illmatic, “No Introduction” from his Grammy nominated project Life is Good, and more.
