(Photos) DOPE! Nas Gets His Own Mural In His Hometown Of Queensbridge

Nas has repped Queensbridge since he got his start in the game, and his hood is showing him the love right back with a brand new mural. Yesterday, fellow QB native Havoc (of Mobb Deep) took to Instagram to share a picture of the mural, captioning it:

“#Queensbridge they just gave a long time friend from the hood a mural! He earned every last bit of that! @nas”

The artwork was a collaboration between 4 artists – Eli Eos (who curated the painting as well,) Jorit Agoch, Lawrence “Myse” Hosannah,and FCEE. It’s amazing! If you want to see the mural in person, it’s located on the corner of 40th Ave and 21st St. in Queens. If not, you can always just check out the pics below!

Metta World Peace returned last night from his seven game suspension to help the Lakers win 96-87 over the Denver Nuggets.  World Peace chipped in 15 points and 5 rebounds, his defense was greatly missed as he helped the Lakers win game 7 and move on to the Western Conference semifinals.  Of course the night wouldn’t be complete without something extra memorable from World Peace.  During his post-game interview with Craig Sager he was sure to rep his hood.  Check it out after the jump.
