Nas performed two sold shows last weekend in Washington D.C. at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Nas performed every song on Illmatic live alongside the 40-member National Symponhy Orchestra and DJ Green Lantern.

This is the year Illmatic turns 20-years old, and Nasir is planning to release Illmatic XX, a special 20th Anniversary Edition of the widely debated hip-hop classic, on April 15 via SONY Legacy. The exclusive collection will feature a number of rare remixes, previously unreleased demos and freestyles.

Watch the performance below.
