Hilarious! Nas Shares His Craziest Party Memory With VICE and ‘Project X’
Nas: “I grew up in the projects, we were always trying to throw parties in the neighborhood. Usually a girl whose parents were out of town. That was always the play…We had the speakers, drinks, no lights on, sweaty…”
I’m a huge fan of VICE’s video content, it looks great, well-edited, concise, and always a unique angle on diverse topics. And I had the best time with the VICE and Mini Cooper crew when we teamed up for a trip to a drive-in movie theater for their Wanderlust series. Their latest series, to promote the film Project X (opening Mar.2), is a series called “Party Legends”…where they’ve asked celebs to share their craziest party memory. Genius!
This new clip has Nas opening up about his pre-rap superstar days. I was expecting to hear about one of the numerous Nasty Nas parties that I remember going to, and then running out of because someone from QB got overly excited with their handguns, lol….But instead, we hear about an illicit project houseparty….gone so wrong! The best part is Nas’ deadpan, raspy delivery, and Kieran O’Hare’s youth angst animation.
