Nas Urges Fans To Visit The NYC "Conscious, Unconscious" Hip Hop 50 Exhibition

Rap enthusiasts should go see the Hip Hop 50 “Conscious, Unconscious” exhibition in New York City, according to Nas.

The show, which celebrated Hip Hop’s 50th birthday this year and opened to the public on Thursday (January 26) at Park Avenue’s Fotografiska Museum, features a collection of Hip Hop photographs gathered over the previous five decades.

“Check out Hip Hop: Conscious Unconscious, a photo exhibit documenting the 50-year evolution of one of the most influential cultural movements of our generation, Hip Hop,” Nas wrote on Instagram, adding in a separate post: “Shoutout to the photographers & Rap Kings -+ @faithnewman19 & Sacha Jenkins & @videomusicbox.”

A-Trak, Ralph McDaniels, Dave East, N.O.R.E., Styles P, Melle Mel, Havoc, Fabolous, Maino, and other members of rap aristocracy were among those that attended the Queensbridge legend’s Instagram images from the occasion.

Eric Adams, the mayor of New York City, Nia Long, Michael Che, and DJ Va$htie were also present.

Up through May, “Hip Hop: Conscious, Unconscious” will be on display.

Fans started discussing who had the better verse on Nas’ 2002 “Made You Look” remix, which also featured Jadakiss and Ludacris, earlier this week, bringing up his own illustrious discography. In an effort to show listeners how powerful his lyrics were, Luda claimed the title by repeating his bars word for word.
