Nas headlines the Twilight Concert on July 19.The third installment of The Twilight Concert Series features 38-year-old rapper Nas, whose debut album "Illmatic," released in 1994, is one of the best albums ever released, regardless of genre.
So it comes as a welcome surprise that Nas' new album, "The Good Life," is touted as a return to the 1990s.
With his old producer No I.D again producing much of it, the new album contains the same "magic" moments he felt on "Illmatic," Nas said in a phone interview. "I chose to make a sound I hadn't done in a long time," the New York rapper said. "It's very East Coast. For me, I was one of the main artists of the '90s. The sound on this album is my sound."
