It appears as if life really is good for hip-hop artist Nas. The artist, who was recently crowned the greatest lyricist of all time by CNN, appears to have interest in technology or just happens to be really good friends with tech billionaires Ben Horowitz and Mark Zuckerberg.

The trio dined at a private dinner alongside many other people, including Zuckerberg’s wife Priscilla. Photos from the private dinner surfaced on Instagram, but no one knows the purpose of the dinner. Some speculate Nas is gearing up to announce a major deal with Facebook. Others believe he may be dropping some of his own money into a new venture that Zuckerberg and Horowitz introduced to him. Horowitz is no stranger to the hip-hop scene, as his venture capitalist firm recently invested in RapGenius.com, a website that specializes in decoding rap lyrics, and he has been photographed with Nas in the past at a Rap Genius function. He also quotes Jay-Z in the introduction of his latest blog post.

Only time will tell how soon and how large Nas’ affiliation with billionaires Horowitz and Zuckerberg will pay off.

  2. Good for Nas, but I would rather have lunch with Bill Gates.

  3. Are they drawing up a plan to create more jobs in “da hood”??? How about funding some of the ‘job training programs” in urban areas???? Are they going to help fix our public schools…espec. in places like Chicago, Detroit, LA????

    We should be questioning why there is so much focus on “glorifying” the gangstah rappers, ruffians, drug dealers, etc. — Why are they shown on so many websites with too much gold on their teeth…some are in the news or on TV bragging about all their money??? They are not my heroes…and should not be put on any postage stamps. But the UNEMPLOYMENT in so many Black communities and big cities is over 30%.

    YES THE GANGSTAHS get a lot of ‘street cred’ — but too many of them are nothing but SYMPTOMS of sick thinking of our people. OUR ANCESTORS… like Harriet Tubman, Dr. George Washington Carver, Ida B. Wells, Langston Hughes, etc. — WOULD BE SHOCKED AND DISAPPOINTED TO SEE SOME OF THE FOUL MESS PROMOTED BY SAID RAPPERS AND GANGSTAHS.

    When I see some of these rappers putting up a lot of money to help some students…to buy up some educational games for schools and donate them…or feeding homeless folks… setting up factories and offering legit work — maybe I will give them some cred !!!
