Nas Sells His First Painting for $14K


Painting pictures with words isn’t the only thing Nas can do. The Queensbridge rapper traveled down to Art Basel Miami 2011, where he performed at Ricochet and sold his first-ever painting for $14,000.

While performing “Made You Look,” Esco picked up the paintbrush and unleashed his inner Picasso, drawing a sketch of a man smoking a joint. The painting, auctioned during the show, went for a staggering $14K, with all proceeds going to charity.

“Just sold my first painting on stage for 14K during my set at @RicochetMiami…. Wow!!! Money goin to charity!” tweeted Nasty Nas.
