Nas Auctions Off Painting, Raises $14,000 for Charity
The Queensbridge Poet shows off his painting chops and earns a bunch of money for children with cancer.
During a performance at Ricochet Lounge in Miami, Florida for Art Basel Miami 2011, Nas painted a picture on stage. The first-ever-sold piece of art from Nasty Nas was then auctioned off to the crowd, garnering a winning bid of $14,000 for charity.
The work — which depicts a man smoking what appears to be a joint — was auctioned off the raise money for children with cancer, according to Nas’ comments in video footage from the event. But, no specific charity was mentioned.
Check out the footage from Nas’ live performance and the quick auction below.
