After two decades, Nas is still at the top of his game!

The hip hop legend is celebrating the 20th anniversary of his iconic debut album, Illmatic and told HipHollywood, “I think about the way the game was back then and I didn’t know I would even be still around this long…I didn’t want to be around this long in the game to tell you the truth.”

And even though he didn’t want to be here, he can now look back on the 20+ years in the rap game and give a little advice to the new comers. “Anybody out there that’s working on their first album, who’s only made one album right now, just think about 20 years from now and it’s gonna be a great feeling.”

HipHollywood caught up with the “One Mic” MC as he was being honored at the 2nd annual Vibe Impact Awards. J. Cole, Swizz Beatz, Busta Rhymes and more came out to show their support for Nasty Nas.

And while everyone came out to celebrate Nasir, he took a moment to give props to another New York rapper, J. Cole.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
