NAS CELEBRATES THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF ‘IT WAS WRITTEN'

Nas is taking a journey down memory lane in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of his second studio album, which was released on July 2,, 1996. The rap legend recalled on being a young MC anxious for sophomore success in an Instagram post on Friday.

Nas went on to express gratitude to his collaborators and followers. “Thank you @stevestoute for assisting me in strategizing, pushing me, and assisting me in the creation of my second album,” he said. “Thank you Trackmasters & L.E.S, Stretch (RIP), Premier and Dr. Dre for producing it, and every artist on this album WE DID IT….” Thank you very much.”

Khloe was by Kim Kardashian’s side during the emotional release of her estranged husband Kanye West’s latest album.

She sat next to her sister, wearing a black turtleneck and blackout shades.

Khloe had already shown her support for her estranged brother-in-law by liking one of his social media posts endorsing Donda before the event.

She also diligently updated her Instagram Stories throughout the day, including a selfie taken in the car prior to the event.

Khloe also shared videos from inside the stadium, featuring the stunning lights that erupted from the stands when the room went dark.

She also released some footage from the stands, showing her seated next to longtime Kardashian satellite Jonathan Cheban, who goes by the moniker ‘Food God.’
