For the second year in a row, Nas and Wu-Tang Clan are touring together in a massive team-up of 90s rap legends. Currently, they’re playing shows all across Europe including a show in Paris last night. Turns out there was a special guest at that Paris show, N.O.R.E. of legendary rap duo Capone-N-Noreaga. Today video made its way to social media of N.O.R.E and Nas linking up backstage after the show.
The pair look like they haven’t skipped a beat. Nas immediately lights up with a massive smile and gives a big hug to his old friend. The two New York legends meet up and discuss the show Nas performed among a number of hip-hop veterans. Just last month N.O.R.E explained how “surreal” it felt to interview Nas on his Drink Champs podcast. He also recently performed at the throwback Lovers & Friends Festival where he once again linked up with some legends backstage.
N.O.R.E And Nas Backstage In Paris
N.O.R.E hasn’t been particularly busy on the musical front. His last new single came out back in 2021 and featured verses from Conway The Machine and Method Man. Nas on the other hand has kept himself very busy with his Kings Disease series. The trio of albums has dropped once a year for each of the past three years. They’re a continued collaborative effort between Nas and producer Hit-Boy. He also received critical acclaim for his 2021 album Magic a shorter record that features A$AP Rocky and DJ Premier. This year Nas has kept busy with the deluxe edition of Kings Disease III dropping a few months ago. He’s also lent guest verses to a handful of songs including tracks by Hit-Boy and Swizz Beats.
It’s unclear if the pair have any plans to ever link up for new music together. N.O.R.E gave hints after his performance at Lovers & Friends that it may be one of his last performances ever. Whether or not he will continue making music even if he ceases to perform is yet to be seen. What do you think of the two Queens icons linking up backstage? Tell us in the comments below.
