“Nas is like…” the most influential African-American right now according to EBONY Magazine. The Queensbridge rapper graces the cover of the long-running magazine’s Power 100 issue, which also included a number of other Hip-Hop citizens.

“These 100 individuals are not only authoring their own success stories, they are leveraging their platforms in order to improve various facets of Black life and render us visible on the world stage,” said EBONY Editor-In-Chief Kyra Kyles in a statement.

Others included in the group are Killer Mike, Donald Glover, Chance The Rapper, Lupe Fiasco, Colin Kaepernick, Beyonce, Kevin Hart and The Weeknd. OGs like Michael Jordan and Neil deGrasse Tyson are also featured. Writer Cheo Hodari Coker who created Luke Cage for Netflix gets a nod as well as Vic Mensa.
