Over the weekend at The Roots Picnic, Nas headlined the festival and brought out Wu-Tang Clan legend Ghostface Killah. The two performed ‘Verbal Intercourse,’ among other hits, and Nas didn’t hold back his admiration, announcing to the crowd, “That’s my fucking favorite rapper right there,” while embracing Ghostface.

The Roots Picnic saw a slew of major hip-hop events, but Nas’s performance was a standout. He had several guests, with Ghostface Killah being particularly noteworthy. In addition to ‘Verbal Intercourse,’ Ghostface treated the crowd to ‘Cherchez La Ghost,’ ‘Ice Cream,’ and ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ The duo’s energy was electric, and the audience could feel the chemistry between these two New York legends.

Nas’s remarks about Ghostface come after a prolific and acclaimed four-year run in his career. Together with Hit-Boy, Nas released six albums, wrapping up the ‘King’s Disease’ trilogy and dropping ‘Magic 2’ and ‘Magic 3.’ He’s been busy promoting these records with multiple videos for deep cuts from both albums.

Recently, Nas was also mentioned as a potential recipient of the key to New York City. This comes in light of controversies surrounding Diddy, who currently holds the key. The calls to rescind Diddy’s key intensified following allegations of him assaulting Cassie in a hotel.

The atmosphere at The Roots Picnic was electric, with Nas and Ghostface later posing for photos with Beanie Sigel, another guest brought out during the set. The moment was a highlight in a festival full of memorable performances.

Nas’s declaration of Ghostface Killah as his favorite rapper was a heartfelt moment that added a special touch to an already incredible performance. Their collaboration on stage at The Roots Picnic will be remembered as a highlight in hip-hop for a long time to come.
