We’re celebrating the man the myth the legend Esco aka Nasir Bin Olu Dara Jones aka Nas a happy birthday as he turned 42 today. He’s not officially from Queensbridge as Nas was born in Brooklyn. Strange right? LOL.

The MC grew a love for music at a very young age as Nas’sĀ father, Olu Dara, was (and still is) a jazz recording artist. It is clearer now that we know how and why Nas creates records the way he does (from production and otherwise). Music, in other words, is in his blood.

Nas would eventually become one of the best gifted and influential artist to ever grace the hip-hop scene with crafty wordplay. The MC has went on to sell millions of records and he even went against the grain and challenged TV pundit Bill O’Reilly, who is considered anti hip-hop.

We here at HHMW want to say Happy Birthday Esco!
