Nas and N*E*R*D to collaborate in one off New York show

Hip-Hop heavyweights (try saying that ten times quickly) Nas and N*E*R*D will be collaborating together for a one-off show in New York it has been announced.

The night in October, which is for the Smirnoff Experience, will showcase Nas – the self-styled King of New York – and Pharrell Williams – the hitmaker known for his work with some of today’s top recording artists.

This latest event will feature the musical talents of N*E*R*D’s Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo to create a 90-minute set celebrating the past, present and future of Hip-Hop in the city where the genre started. N*E*R*D, one of the most exciting and versatile live bands, has spent the summer touring the United States and some of Europe’s biggest festivals. On their participation in Smirnoff Experience, they remarked "we love playing in New York and look forward to this incredible event.”

Nas, regarded as one of Hip-Hop’s greatest MCs, arrives fresh from the success of his latest studio album, “Untitled.” When asked to comment on his role in this event, Nas said, "This show will be one of the most unique events I'll have played at. The line-up features some of the most exciting and ground-breaking artists in the Hip-Hop world today, and I'm proud to be a part of it. With what we've got planned - it's gonna be a truly original experience and the only place to be in New York that night."

So there.
