Nas is a man of many talents. He’s a multi-platinum rapper and has been hailed one of the greatest MCs and lyricists of all time. When he’s not writing music or dropping tracks, Nas has been making a name for himself in the fashion industry. With several years experience under his belt, he’s now decided to open his own shoe store in Las Vegas.
“N.Y. State of Mind” was the first peek into the world of Nas’ sneaker addiction. As his career progressed, he also closely aligned himself with companies like Willie Esco, FILA, and 310 Motoring Shoes. And while he may not be as adept at juggling a music career and business ventures as some of his fellow artists, his work designing shoes for FILA Italia and his time as their ambassador seems to have inspired him to take the next step.
While full details have not yet been released, Nas did tweet pictures of himself on the construction site with the update. Nas fans have determined from the image that the location of Nas’ shoe store may in fact be The Linq, an outdoor mall in Vegas. Though it’s currently unclear if Nas will be designing a new full line of shoes or merely selling a variety of shoes, more information will be released as the store finishes construction.Google+
