Back in the Day Party for Nas

Kelis threw a surprise birthday party for Nas last night at the Canal Room in New York City. It was full of old-school rap artists, many of who also performed. You can read more about it here. Apparently folks came dressed in their OG finest:

Many of those that filled the Canal Room wore their old school paraphernalia like Cazals, fat laces, jean suits, gold "dookie" ropes and other items.

For others, accessories were given to them by Adidas, Kangol and faux gold bamboo earrings, which were popular with the b-girls of the 80's.

Now those sound like some gift bags worth turning out for!

Here are some images:

^^Cakin'! Happy Birthday, Nas!!

^^"What's up, Ma?" I am so team Nas/Kelis, they better never break-up!

^^Kwame updates the old school look with fresh color.

^^Ursh flosses the Kangol....

^^..and offers an old school dookie up for examination cause nope, it just aint his style.

^^Monie in the middle, in the middle...and Rosie off to her side!

^^Too sweet: three generations, that's Grandpa to the far left, Dad in the middle and you know which one God's son is.


^^And wave 'em like you just don't care!!

A fun time was had by all, but at the end of the night, we couldn't bring it back to the days gone past.
