He was born into music with his father being a jazz musician from Mississippi. At the age of just four NAS picked up his first instrument and began to play. His instrument in question was the trumpet. By the age of nine he began to be influenced by the emerging genre of rap and began to write his own songs. His parents would divorce the mid 80's which prompted Jones to drop out of school in the 8th grade. NAS made his whole life about music bringing his friend Will Graham into the mix as his DJ. Nasir began to go by name of Kid wave before finally settling on the Nasty Nas. He first gained attention in 1991 when he performed in Main Source's Live at the Barbecue. It was this performance that had Nas being hailed as child prodigy. In 1992 after securing a record deal with Columbia he released his first single, "Halftime". The single was success and soon the word was out on NAS.

In 1994 Nas released his first album Illmatic. It had seven popular singles on it and was considered something special. Nas would follow this up this album up with the albums It Was Written," "I Am…," "Nastradamus," "Stillmatic," "From Illmatic to Stillmatic," "The Lost Tapes Vol. 1," and "God's Son."
