Footage from rapper Nasir "Nas" Jones' September DUI arrest has made its way onto the Internet while the accompanying charges have reportedly been dismissed.

The footage landed online early Friday (December 4) morning.

TMZ has obtained police dash cam footage showing rapper Nas failing several DUI field sobriety tests back in September. He was cleared of the charges -- but does he look sober to you? But you can see Nas wobble during a balance test and take the wrong number of steps during the "walk the line" test -- yet still, authorities decided it wasn't enough evidence to convict. (TMZ)

He admitted to being under the influence of marijuana when he was originally arrested.

When rapper Nas was arrested for DUI this past fall, he was driving under the influence of marijuana. The star, 36 was taken in by Henry County cops near his Georgia home on Sept. 10, and according to a police report, he admitted that he was smoking weed at a friend's house before the arrest.

However, charges in the case have reportedly been dropped.

The case was dismissed after the artist's drug test came back negative, even after Nas had admitted to officials and reporters that he had been smoking marijuana before being pulled over. (The Celebrity Cafe)

The "Hero" rapper is currently placing final touches on his Damian Marley collaboration album, Distant Relatives.

"Distant Relatives, you, me, that's what it's about. And I think the title alone just says, it opens up a whole different conversation about what this is all about, distant relatives, family everywhere. I wanted to be more impactful than my last album, my Untitled album, because it was just certain things on that, I didn't really get a chance to pull it off a hundred percent. There was a lot of pressure on that record. I do what I do and however it comes out, I'm happy, I'm thankful. I think this one will be a great turn-out as well." (Semtex TV)
