Nas Wants To Unleash Verbal Fireworks In Central Park
April 08, 2004

Last week a "10th Anniversary Edition" of Nas' classic debut album, Illmatic, hit stores. Now Nas wants to give something back to both the fans who have supported him and the city that reared him, so he's planning a free concert in New York's Central Park on the Fourth of July.

Nas is in Miami putting the finishing touches on his seventh studio effort, Streets Disciple. The concert would come just two days before the expected release date of that double album.

"New York is the energy of the world, especially where hip-hop's concerned," Nas explained. "There's no better place to set it off than Central Park. It reminds me of 'Wild Style' the movie — Fab Five Freddy and Double Trouble, Busy Bee and Grandmaster Flash and Rock Steady. I want to re-create that moment in Central Park."

Nas said he wants "memorable" guests to join him for the performance. His record company confirmed his efforts but said details were still being worked out. If the concert is held on the park's Great Lawn, where Simon & Garfunkel performed their famous free concert in 1981, it will be the first hip-hop concert to be held at the site.
