Nas' Love For Ghostbusters Style


Nas Bill Murray

The U.S. rapper is well known for his music, but his creativity extends to clothing too and now he has teamed up with French boutique colette, to bring the '80s film to his HSTRY clothing line.

As well as channelling the 1984 comedy for his clothing, he also extended the Ghostbusters theme to his new range of eyewear for The Ghostbusters Collection presented by sunglasses company Italia Independent and Nas.

“Everybody loves Ghostbusters and HSTRY is about taking on history, whether it's joining movies or people that I personally like and love, and bringing that message back through the clothes,” he told Billboard. “Whatever I felt was a big moment for me, I like to see it in my HSTRY clothes.

Nas Working With Baz Luhrmann On New Tv Musical


Baz Luhrmann Nas

The Australian filmmaker's forthcoming period drama follows a group of talented teens growing up in New York's South Bronx in the 1970s, and he reveals Nas has been helping him write the rhymes for one of the characters, who becomes a successful rap star in the 1990s.

Speaking at the Big Apple's Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday (23Apr16), Luhrmann explained, "One of the things which I don't think anyone knows, because it's not in the trailers - and we've been doing this for about a year now - is that one of the characters goes on and we discover that he's actually a successful rap star in the 90's, and he narrates it through rhyme, through rap.

"One of the great collaborations is that I've been working really closely (with) in creating these rhymes - and he's a producer on the film, with one of the most iconic voices of the 1990s - and that's Nas (sic). And so Nas has been this other huge creative force in the production. And it's been playing really, really successfully."

Rapper Nas Backing New Protein Bars Made From Crickets


Nas

Bosses at Exo have recently launched snacks containing cricket flour in U.S. supermarket retailers Whole Foods and Wegman's, and they are hoping to expand the company with other products including shakes and protein powers.

"In the long term, we envision cricket powder being competitive with soy, and whey, and any other protein source," Exo co-founder Greg Sewitz told Bloomberg. "That starts with introducing cricket protein to a consumer base with no direct experience with it and a lot of preconceived ideas that were negative."

The executives have just completed a $4 million (£2.8 million) funding campaign and investors include the One Mic star.

Kelis Eager To Compete On Iron Chef


Kelis Nas

The Milkshake singer has taken a step back from music in recent years to focus on her talents in the kitchen, and she recently released her first collection of recipes, titled My Life on a Plate: Delicious Everyday Recipes & Sauces.

Now Kelis reveals she is eyeing the opportunity to take on other top cooks on the hit show Iron Chef - although the 36 year old fears she may have left it too late to really compete in the contest.

"I would love to do the show," she tells the New York Post's Page Six. "But... I cook at my leisure right now and I remember when I graduated from culinary school (in 2008) and when I was working on a line at a restaurant I was so fast because I was seasoned to be that way. I'm not as fast as I was back then. I would need to get back into that frame of mind."
