Nas Celebrates “Life is Good” Release at Tammany Hall on the Lower East Side
Just over year after that Smif-n-Wessun clusterfuck befell Tammany Hall on Orchard Street, the venue was again host to a high-profile party hip hop party. Only this time, everything went rather smoothly.
With a taping at Colbert Report earlier in the day already under his belt, Nas jetted to the Lower East Side Tuesday evening to celebrate the release of his new LP, Life is Good. A secret performance at Tammany Hall. Nas took the stage at approximately 10:30 pm and rapped through selections from his storied discography. The performance, slated only for a brief period, extended to seventy-five minutes. Busta Rhymes and Swizz Beatz were also in attendance.
Nas is sure feeling some extra special love for the neighborhood of late, as it was his second time at the venue in three months. He was last spotted here filming the music video for lead single, “The Don.”
Meanwhile, when asked for comment about the one-year anniversary of the notorious Smif-n-Wessun CD release disaster, and the difference between these two shows, Tammany Hall management responded with the following statement:
We’re thrilled with the cooperation by the 7th Precinct during this event to ensure that it went without incident. We’ve been working continuously with police this past year to make the place more secure for patrons.
