“In January we polled hundreds of past A3C attendees and asked them who they wanted to see perform at A3C Festival this year. Nas was the decisive favorite,” A3C Partner and Director Mike Walbert tells Billboard. “Nas is one of best MCs of all time, and his impact on hip-hop is unmeasurable. Nas done so much more than release music. He has become a notable figure in academia, technology and the investment community. The hip-hop world patiently awaits an album this year, and I for one couldn’t be more excited.”
