Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones, known as NAS, is 5’8’’ and the son of famous jazz musician Olu Dara. Nas was born on September 14 1973 and he joined the Devastatin' Seven in the mid-1980s. His attachment to this team has been a great influence on Nas’s music. In 1994, the “Nasty Nas” released his debut album named “Illmatic” which was released under the brand of Coulmbia/SME. The ghetto life was greatly focused in this album. Nas refused to add the concepts elements of misogyny and violence of some contemporary hip hop. He got his big break when 'MC Serch', the ex- 3rd Bass member included Nas’s verse in the "Halftime" on the single named Zebrahead in the year 1992.
