Nas, Young M.A, Freddie Gibbs & More Join Roskilde As Full Schedule Is Announced
Having sold more than 25 million records, received 11 Grammy nominations and inspired a new generation of rappers, American legend Nas is ready to take on the festival’s Orange Stage.
The New York rapper is particularly cherished for his classic debut album ‘Illmatic’, widely regarded as one of the best in hip-hop.
His latest effort, ‘Life Is Good’, was released in 2012, and he was one of the writers behind Netflix-produced hit series ‘The Get Down’. It was recently revealed that he will finally release a new album later in 2017, and fans will have good reason to expect both new material and well-known gems such as ‘The Message’, ‘If I Ruled the World (Imagine That)’, ‘N.Y. State of Mind’ and ‘I Can’.
