The only thing about Nas' (and The Roots') performance on Fallon that isn't completely awesome is the hat he's wearing. #WhereTheEffIsLIG

He did a lecture at UNT where my friend goes to school and she happened to find an extra ticket on the ground, and called me to go with her, haha. He spoke about creativity and its connection to business, he spoke about poverty and economic/educational reform, and he spoke about questioning everything you hear, and looking beyond the box. Then he performed solo, just him and his piano, no backup singers, no live band, just him. And his voice is probably one of the most powerful things I've ever heard in my life, haha. Not to mention he was SHREDDING on that piano. He's one of my favorite musicians so it was really cool to witness.
