This summer has been a weird season for rap. Kanye fell short of ascending to heaven withYeezus. Jay-Z’s attempt to transcribe the Illuminati Handbook ended up being a Magna Carta Holy Fail (YUK YUK). J. Cole ranted on Twitter about no one paying attention to him because not Ye or Jay. But luckily for us, there is one dependable, steadfast rapper out there, and he’ll be performing after a game during MLB All Star Week at Citi Field on July 19th: Nas! Very few artists are capable of matching the lyrical tenacity and overall heft of Queensbridge’s own. And we’ve got tickets to his Citi Field post-game show. You want them?
