- Nas by numbers: eight consecutive platinum and multi-platinum albums, ranked #5 on MTV’s list of The Greatest MCs of All Time, ranked #2 in The Source’s list of the Top 50 Lyricists of All Time
- When you were first introduced to his lyrical prowess: in 1994 on his debut, Illmatic, which helped revive the New York City rap scene and now tops the syllabus in hip-hop history classes
- His rapping style : rampant use of multi-syllabic, internal rhyme patterns
- His words: densely packed, potent, and conversational
- Tracks later generations will enjoy when they open the hip-hop time capsule in 2094: “Surviving the Times,” “It Ain’t Hard to Tell,” “N.Y. State of Mind”
- Latest track that made such an impact it won a BET Hip Hop Award for “Impact Track”: “Daughters”
- What to expect from Nas’s live show: greatest hits from Illmatic (which just celebrated its 20th birthday) and hot tracks from his upcoming album, tentatively titled Life is Good
- When you first met Trey: in 2005, when he unleashed his presciently titled debut album I Gotta Make It
- Numbers that tell you he made it: three Grammy nominations, one Soul Train Award, one BET Award, and one MuchMusic Video Award
- His style: smooth crooning mixed with smooth rapping
- Trey Songz hit that dispels all of the work of Alfred Kinsey and Masters & Johnson: “I Invented Sex”
- Other singles that might elicit variations of bumping and grinding: “Say Ah,” “Successful,” “Bottom’s Up”
- What you might hear live: new songs such as “Na Na” and “Smartphones” from his upcoming album Trigga
