Nas turns 38 today (September 14). The Queensbridge legend has been celebrating his birthday on Twitter, retweeting messages from all his superstar friends like Swizz Beatz, Carmelo Anthony, Funkmaster Flex, Talib Kweli, 9th Wonder, Estelle, Hot 97 and others, wishing him a happy born day.
He is also making sure to salute his friend, the late Amy Winehouse, who shares the same born day as him on Twitter.
“I’m RT people all day,” he wrote. “Thanks for the #HappyBirthdayNas love… Don’t forget my sis #HappyBirthdayAmy! (sic).”
It’s been a great Summer for Nasir Jones. He’s been traveling the country as the headliner for this year’s Rock the Bells tour, performing his classic debut album, Illmatic, with special guests DJ Premiere, Pete Rock and AZ, as well as working on his new album, tentatively called Life is Good, for Def Jam Recordings. In addition, earlier this week it was announced that the rap vet would be releasing a memoir, titled, It Ain’t Hard to Tell, with journalist Touré next year.
