at2:26 pm | By

There’s no question that Nas is one of the biggest veterans in the rap game, and has kept up a lot of longevity over the years. While he’s certainly had some hits and misses in his career, the legendary MC has stayed strong and true to himself no matter what. Having come long and far from his days living in the Queensbridge projects, Nas has experienced some of the highest high’s and lowest low’s in hip hop. In honor of one of his best albums’ anniversaries, which was inspired from his lowest points, God’s Son, we take a look back at his up’s and down’s.

Although he was very young when he had Destiny, she was such a blessing for Nas, and he even did a tribute record to her on his last album.
