New York rapper Nas knows music royalty when he’s around it. The hip-hop veteran has called Lauryn Hill a rarity in today’s entertainment industry.

Nasir Jones went to Instagram Sunday (February 3) with a major nod to Miss Hill.

Last night, Nas hinted at having some low-key big news on deck.

Earlier in the week, Nas celebrated rap pioneer and music icon Rakim‘s birthday.

In 2018, New York rapper 50 Cent reflected on seeing an epic Eric B. and Rakim reunion show.
