Nas showed love for Las Vegas in a photoshoot at The Library at Marquee Nightclub at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, which we featured in our recent Billboard Music Awards special issue (photo shown above). Now we go behind the scenes at the shoot with the legendary rapper, who's gearing up for his tenth studio album, which he will record in part in Vegas. Watch below, and check out the Billboard Music Awards, airing live from -- but of course -- Las Vegas this Sunday (May 22) at 8pm ET on ABC.
"I was on tour in Europe for a month, just got back and already we're hitting the streets running. Packed my flip-flops, shades and white polos, and here I am in Vegas. I've got a show here at the Cosmopolitan, so we partied at Marquee all night. It was a great night and I'm feeling happy to be alive this morning."
