Nas


Nas had a concert at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg, Florida on September 21, 2017.

I saw his tour bus parked not too far from the venue and patiently waited for him to come out. Unfortunately, his bodyguard approached me and said that once Nas exits the bus, he won't have time to stop and sign, he'll be immediately escorted into a car and driven to the venue. The guard then offered to take my CD on the bus for Nas to sign as long as I agreed to not hang around waiting or telling others where Nas would be. I agreed and he took my CD cover and brought it to Nas and then had it back to me a minute or two later.

Nas signed the cover of his Illmatic CD.
