Anytime one of the greatest MCs alive announces he's coming to your town, it's a good way to start the week.
Nas is coming to Jannus Live in St. Petersburg on Sept. 21 for a long-overdue proper headlining concert. Tickets to see the Illmatic rapper are $43 and up and go on sale Friday. Click here for details.
While Nas twice performed in Tampa in 2015, those two shows come with an asterisk -- one was a truncated late-night appearance at Club Skye, the other was part of the ill-fated HIT (History in Tampa) Music Festival at the USF Sun Dome. Before that, you have to go back years to find a full Nas concert in Tampa.
This headlining show is a one-night-only detour from Nas's fall tour with Lauryn Hill, which hits Miami on Sept. 22 and Jacksonville on Sept. 23.For info on those shows, click here.
