Nas To Perform “Illmatic” At Coachella

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.
