    Bet. I'll be there. But it's The Armory, not the Armony. Nas is my motherfucker but last time I saw Nas at The Armory was right when the Jay-Z beef started. He came out 2 hours late, drunk as shit to a very hostile crowd. He came out saying "Aaliyah, I wish you didn't die in that plane crash, it should have been Jay-Z and Dame Dash". Beanie Siegel was perforing in the same building the next night and they were tearin' down the flyers and shit. He was stumbling through every song, forgetting words, or not even rapping to some of 'em, just dancing on stage drunk. Some girl threw a drink on him, and he spit in her face from the stage. The dudes she was with threw a trash can on the stage, one of Nas's boys threw a glass vodka bottle into the crowd, and a riot ensued. One of Nas's boys flashed a pistol on stage. I saw AZ, who performed earlier gettin' the fuck outta there. We bounced. A couple dudes got stabbed, gun shots, etc. Basically a typical rap concert in Rochester. I think he's matured since then, so hopefully this show will be better. Leave the 'goons' in Q.B. this time fam, and go easy on the fuckin' Henessey so you can remember your lyrics.

      He killed it at rock the bells 2011 and 2012 but that summer jam this year was a joke and from the videos ive seen at coachella it wasnt much better

      Every time I seen him in Detroit except for one (2002-stillmatic tour) he has put on a decent show, Rock the bells 07 w/ u-tang, rock the bells 09 w/ marley and life is good tour last year. The one time in 02, the sound was fucked in the first place.

      Dont expect it to be much better this time around, just saw him at summer jam in nj in june he was drunk as fuck stumbling thru illmatic in 20 mins and reading it off a teleprompter and still forgetting words, no az, no lauryn hill, his special guests were french montana and meek millz, they dont even do songs with nas, totally stole the show, shit was lame as fuck
