Tickets selling fast for a chance to see one of the all-time greats appear at the O2.

One of hip-hop’s all times greats, Nas, has added a Leeds gig to a mini UK tour built around his appearance at the Wireless Festival in July.

With 23 years and 11 full length albums into his career, Nas has come a long way since he changed the face of hip-hop with his ground breaking debut album ‘Illmatic’ and now he’ll be bringing his poetic yet incendiary take on the genre back to UK shores.

Starting his run at London’s Wireless Festival alongside artists such as The Weeknd, Chance The Rapper and Skepta, he will then take in three headline shows across the UK where he will be showcasing material from his now illustrious career.

Nas is often named as one of the greatest hip hop artists. MTV ranked him at number five on their list of “The Greatest MCs of All Time”. In 2012, The Source ranked him number two on their list of the “Top 50 Lyricists of All Time”.

In 2013, Nas was ranked fourth on MTV's “Hottest MCs in the Game” list. About.com ranked him first on their list of the “50 Greatest MCs of All Time” in 2014, and a year later, Nas was featured on “The 10 Best Rappers of All Time” list by Billboard.

See Nas at O2 Academy Leeds on July 12 to catch a set spanning throughout his whole career with local support from Dan Hills. Tickets are flying out and are available from o2academyleeds.co.uk
