Nas To Perform 'Illmatic' At Lovebox

He's coming to London...
Illmatic

'Illmatic' is twenty years old, yet in that time few have come close to matching its status as one of hip hop's unimpeachable masterpieces.

With a lavish box set incoming, Nas is set to toast his seminal LP with a handful of special performances - including just one here in the UK.

Nas will play this summer's Lovebox, performing 'Illmatic' in its entirety. A no doubt celebratory set, the rapper is joined by the likes of Adam Beyer, Benji B, Kenny Dope, Norman Jay and more in the list of new additions.

Crossing genres, Lovebox is set to invite UK garage master DJ EZ to bring the noise, alongside a performance from legendary soundsystem collective Soul II Soul.

Tickets are on sale now.

Lovebox runs between July 18th - 19th. Line up so far:
