We’ve just finished watching the sneak preview of VH1′s “Behind The Music” featuring Nas and from the looks of it this will be one of the best episodes of the in-depth series. We are almost too excited for this one to premiere. So to help you get ready for the episode which airs Wednesday April 18th, we are giving you three strong reasons that you need to tune in.
EXPECT A HIP HOP HISTORY LESSON:
Watching this special will not just give you an inside look at Nas’ life growing up, it will also give you a history lesson in Hip Hop. With Queensbridge being at the heart of the beginning of the growing Hip Hop movement back in the day, you will also get Nas’ point of view on how MC Shan, Roxanne Shante & other noted MC’s influenced him and what influence Hip Hop had on the youth at that time.
Nas along with his brother Jungle tell stories of solving differences through breakdancing instead of violence and meeting hip hop legends like Rakim. It will definitely remind you of why you love hip-hop today.
