/ November 28, 2013

Nas knows a thing or two about classic rap material. While strutting the red carpet for the Black Nativity premiere in Harlem last week, the Illmatic MC saluted Snoop Dogg for making “one of the best albums” with his 1993 debut Doggystyle, which hit its 20th anniversary this past weekend.

“Snoop Dogg changed the world with Doggystyle,” Nas tells VIBE. “That was one of the biggest albums, the best albums in music that came out. He blasted the music game and bust it open. He made it bigger.”

In 2011, the Queensbridge native also paid homage to the Doggfather, the BMI Urban Awards’ honoree of the night, by performing a special rendition of “The Next Episode” alongside Kurupt and Daz Dillinger. Watch Nasir hail the D-O-Double G above.
