Video: Nas performs symphonic version of 'The World is Yours' in DC

This past Friday and Saturday, Nas came to DC and rocked the jam packed crowd of two sold out shows at the Kennedy center in lieu of the Illmatic 20- year anniversary celebration. Mister Jones performed the entire album along with a few other tracks backed up by a 40-member national symphony orchestra and DJ green Lantern. Unfortunately, when I tried to purchase the tickets a couple months ago, it was sold out, but I was able to come across this video. INSANE. Watch the footage of his quick encouraging speech along with the performance of the "World is Yours"::
