Some will say that renowned MC, Nas, and venture capitalist Ben Horowitz’s friendship is random, but we’re a time where six degrees of separation links us to more people than we realize. That said, we’re optimistic about the idea of two men from polar opposite backgrounds finding common ground.
Along with former label executive and Translation founder/CEO, Steve Stoute, the aforementioned associates participated in the Sprite x Complex: Re/Fresh Your Thirst panel at SXSW in Austin, Tex. on Sunday, March 9. Music culture, business, and technology were all points of conversation, during which each answered question about their respective crafts and knowledge on others. The exclusive event was hosted by Sprite and Complex Media.
Afterwards Nas and Horowitz were spotted partying with actor Ashton Kutcher, of all people, at an event that night. For further insight on the unlikely friendship here. See photos from the panel and the soirée on the following pages.
