How Was Nas’s Early Life And Education?

Nas’s real name is Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones. He was born on September 14, 1973, in Brooklyn. Olu Dara Jones, who is his father, is from Mississippi, and Fannie Ann, his mother, is from North Carolina.

His father is a jazz and blues guitarist. His mother is an employee of the US Postal Service. When Nas was a child, his family moved to Queens’ Long Island City neighborhood.

He started to play the trumpet at the age of 4. Nas discovered the then-new genre of rap when he was nine years old. In 1985, his parents divorced. 

Nas dropped out of school after the eighth grade.

How Did Nas Start His Career?

Nas began recording music as a teenager under the alias “Kid Wave,” with the help of a neighbor who served as his DJ.

In 1991, Nas appeared on Main Source’s “Live at the Barbeque.”  He signed a record deal with Columbia Records in mid-1992, owing to the efforts of his then-manager MC Serch.

Nas made his solo debut with the single “Halftime” from the soundtrack to the film “Zebrahead,” which was composed by MC Serch.

Nas’s superior rhyming abilities drew a lot of attention from the hip-hop community. His debut album, “Illmatic,” was released in 1994.  Illmatic includes several singles such as “It Ain’t Hard to Tell,” “One Love,” and “The World Is Yours.”

The Source named Illmatic the best album of 1994. Nas’ second album, “It Was Written,” came out in 1996.

Two of his singles were instant hits: “If I Ruled the World (Imagine That)” (featuring Lauryn Hill) and “Street Dreams.”

The Firm, a supergroup composed of Nas, AZ, Foxy Brown, and Cormega, made their debut in the album “It Was Written.” 

The Firm started working on its debut album after signing with Dr. Dre‘s Aftermath Entertainment label. Cormega was fired from the band halfway through the album’s recording. Nature joined the team as the fourth member.

Their album was released in 1997 and received mixed reviews. Despite receiving a platinum certification, the album did not perform well, and the group disbanded.

Nas went on to release nine more albums, including “I Am…” in 1999, “Nastradamus” in 1999, “Stillmatic” in 2001, “God’s Son” in 2002, “Street’s Disciple” in 2004, “Hip Hop Is Dead” in 2006, “Untitled” in 2008, “Life is Good” in 2012, and “Nasir” in 2018.

Nas worked with Lin-Manuel Miranda and others in November 2016 on the song “Wrote My Way Out,” which was featured in the album “The Hamilton Mixtape.”

He revealed his next album’s name, “King’s Disease,” on August 13. Its sequel, “King’s Disease II,” was released on August 6, 2021. This is his highest-charting album since 2012 and debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200.

Nas released his album “Magic” on December 24. It is his third studio album, executive produced by Hit-Boy, and features appearances by ASAP Rocky and DJ Premier.
