While performing Nas remarked, “Let’s make a difference, every day, for the rest of our lives.” .


After the performance just turned 48 years old, a proclamation ceremony was held where Nas was awarded Key To The Queens Borough by the President of Queens, Donovan Richards and Franck D Joseph. Also, September 23 was officially announced as Nas day in Queens, New York.

Nasir Jones is not only God’s son, but he’s Queens’ son. That’s why @drichardsqns presented him with not just a proclamation, but also the Key to Queens borough tonight...” wrote Franck who shared Nas’s picture with the president and receiving Key To The City.
