Nas closes Represent with final #conversegig of the series

After nine nights of epic gigs featuring some of the world’s most loved artist, as he brought Represent to a close on Friday Nas proved that sometimes all you need is one man and a mic to captivate a crowd.

Joined by Children of the Night, Speech Debelle, and Kano.

You could feel the wave of excitement surge across the room as Nas took to the stage, backed up by DJ Green Lantern blasting out the opening notes of ‘The Don’ from this year’s ‘Life is Good’. He didn’t make the fans wait long before heading in to classic territory though with ‘It Ain’t Hard To Tell’, ‘N.Y State Of Mind’ and, of course, ‘Represent’ all making an appearance. Up on stage he looked in his element playing in this intimate setting, even noting on the mic that, “Careers start at clubs like this”. The whirlwind tour round his extensive catalogue finished with the poignant ‘Bye Baby’, written about his high profile divorce with Kelis. Another emotional moment in nine nights that have been packed full of them.

That’s the final show wrapped up, but don’t forget video highlights can be found for all shows at and stay tuned to for future #conversegigs.

Thanks London: it’s been a blast.
