Nas To Perform "Illmatic" At Coachella

Nas announces that he is set to perform "Illmatic" at the Coachella event where OutKast is also slated to reunite onstage.

Coachella 2014 is set to feature a reunited OutKast and now it is slated to include Nas performing his debut album, 1994's Illmatic

"Nas plans to perform the 10-track album front-to-back this spring at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., and at this year's Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, as well as other unannounced tour dates," MTV reported today (February 4). 

Recently, Nas addressed how he might create a second installment of the Illmatic album. 

“[I] thought about it before,” Nas says during an interview with VIBE Magazine. "I definitely thought about that, but it has to flow. It has to be natural. I can work on that and then if I don’t like it, I’ma scrap it. I have to feel it, man. It got to be honest.”

Nas' illmaticXX, a 20th anniversary edition of his 1994 debut album, was announced today (February 4). To see the release date, cover art and tracklisting for the upcoming anniversary release, click here
