The finest rapper with the freshest lyrics just turned the big 4-0 — and he did it in style! Who else could pull off this purple tux?
On September 12, 2013, Hennessy hosted an intimate dinner and exclusive after party with Nas in celebration of his milestone 40th birthday.
The extraordinary dinner was held at New York City hot spot Avenue.
The group dined on a menu created by award winning chef Mario Carbone followed by a post-dinner celebration where the group enjoyed masterfully blended Hennessy V.S mixed drinks while entertained by DJ Mos and D-Nice who provided the music for the night.
After dinner, Hennessy Senior Vice President, Rodney Williams presented Nas with gifts to commemorate his 40th birthday, including an engraved bottle of Hennessy Paradis Impérial. Nas was also gifted with a custom, engraved Hublot Classic Fusion Classic Ultra-Thin timepiece featuring a “cognac colored” crocodile watchband.
Musicians, celebrities, and tastemakers all came out to celebrate Nas’ birthday including Mariah Carey, Jermaine Dupri, Olivia Munn, Estelle and Anthony Mackie, Tyson Beckford, Melanie Fiona, Tristan Mack Wilds, Q-Tip, Cassidy, Nas, Pusha T among many others.
This shot of Nas with his dad Olu Dara is probably our favorite of the night.
