Nas took the stage at the 2012 ESPYs and performed cuts from his highly-anticipated upcoming album Life Is Good. Nas ripped through “Summer On Smash,” “Nasty,” and “The Don” for the crowd of athletic and entertainment superstars.
“Amazing night and an honor to be in the building with all those men and women,” said Nas via statement to XXL. “They have always supported me and last night was about me supporting them.”
With everyone from NBA superstar and new Los Angeles Laker Steve Nash to Super Bowl champs Eli Manning and Justin Tuck in the crowd, Nas gave the night’s most talked-about show, performing alongside fellow hip hop star Swizz Beatz.
