Kent, WA – Lupe Fiasco has often expressed his respect and admiration for the Hip Hop deity Nas and now he will pay homage to God’s Son live in concert alongside his Illmatic co-star AZ.

Fiasco took to Instagram on Thursday (June 27) to announce the show titled “Celebrating 25 Years Of Nas.”

The Chicago bred lyricist captioned the post, “This is #FirmFiasco in real life!!!!!!!!!!!!” confirming that he is performing The Album by The Firm in its entirety over his beats. AZ, who was a member of said Hip Hop supergroup and frequent Nas collaborator, also took to Instagram to promote the commemorative event.

Nas immediately impacted the rap scene in 1994 with his seminal album Illmatic. Since then, he received numerous accolades for his artistry, entrepreneurship, and longevity within the industry.

Esco is also set to embark on The Royalty Tour with Mary J. Blige in July.
