It was a perfect night on Thursday, June 14 as a mixed crowd of celebrities, hypebeats and media gathered around in a field in Queensbridge to listen and celebrate Nas' latest album titled Nasir.

There has been lots of excitement for Nas' album in New York since his last release in 2012 which he titled Life Is Good.

After escorting us to the destination in the sprinter, we were all all free to enjoy ourselves in a field surrounding my camouflaged Humvees and trucks.

The sun had went down, and the New York skyline shined bright, before the man of the night stepped into the field of pebbles alongside Kanye West to finally give fans a first listen to the seven track album he simply called Nasir.

Look left Kim Kardashian and LaLa are hanging out together enjoying the project. Look right Pusha T is standing nodding his head watching the fans, media, and hypebeasts jump around surrounding Kanye West and Nas in excitement.

Look back, Chris Rock is hanging out, while Swizz Beatz dances around, and Wale laughs. It was truly a beautiful gathering.
