It’s been 10 years since rapper Nas Ethered his rival Jay Z on wax by implying that the illest MC was gay and a narcissist. But last night the two men, who magnanimously settled their feud years ago, came together to celebrate Nas’ 38th birthday at Catch in New York City.
La La and her husband Carmelo Anthony looked very classy and respectable last night. Ladies, pay attention: this is how you dress when you’re with your man in mixed company. Exposing your cleavage when you’re with your man around other men is never acceptable under any circumstance.
Colombiana star Zoe Saldana also attended the birthday bash for Nas. Jay Z took no questions from the media about reports that he has a secret son in Trinidad. Isa Jael is now 9 and living with his mom, Shenelle Scott on the exotic island in a palatial home that Jigga bought for them. Jay Z met Shenelle on the “Big Pimpin'” video set in New York City in 2000, before Jay Z met Beyoncé.
Remember when rapper AZ outshined Nas on “Life’s a Bitch” on Nas’ acclaimed Illmatic album in 1994? Everyone thought AZ was “The One” hip hop had been waiting for — and then he fell off the face of the earth.
L-R: Carmelo Anthony, Jay-Z, Ne-Yo, Nas, Steve Stoute and Common. Steve Stoute’s book release party was also held last night. They say his party snarled traffic for hours because people got out of their cars to snap photos of the tricked out Maybach used in Jay-Z and Kanye West’s video for “Otis” was parked outside Schnabel’s West 11th Street home before it was pulled into the lobby for the Tuesday night bash.
