Hip-hop legend Nas kicked off his 40th birthday at Tao Beach at the Venetian on Saturday. Arriving with a group of friends, he enjoyed lunch while drinking Dom Perignon and Hennessey cocktails.
He was surprised by friend and fellow hip-hop artist Busta Rhymes, who came to say happy birthday. The two hung out in the cabana, laughing and singing along to the sounds of DJ Jerzy.
Thrilled at the presentation, Nas was then treated to his second birthday cake of the weekend accompanied by a parade of large pool floats. He took photos with the treat adorned with a crown and Mets logo and was later seen tasting it with friends. “All Gold Everything” rapper Trinidad Jame$, who also spent his day at a VIP cabana poolside, later came over to say happy birthday. Nas’ group stayed until 5 p.m. then left to get ready for the big fight.
