Hip-hop legend Nas has been bestowing praise on young rappers recently, most notably fellow New Yorker, Azealia Banks otherwise referred to as the "total package" and Meek Mill, who, according to Nas, is giving the streets a voice.

Nas told Rap-Up.com that Azealia Banks has "incredible star power," whilst praising her for the way in which she provides the total package. Though hot on the radar, Azealia Banks is not the only one to catch Nas’ eye. Philly MC Meek Mill has been working with Nas in the studio, ahead of the release of his debut album Dreams & Nightmares, saying "it's amazing" of their work together.

This summer will see the release of Nas’ 10th album as well as an appearance at this year’s Rock the Bells festival.
