Nas is one of the GOATs but even the rap gods can be caught off guard on occasion.
While hosting and performing at Palms in Las Vegas on Friday night (May 25) video obtained by TMZ reveals the Queensbridge emcee trying to stumble through both his hosting duties and a rendition of “If I Ruled The World.” Unfortunately for serious fans at the event, the Henny was talking.
The video also shows Nasty Nas diddy bopping to Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature” and trying to plan his escape route because of his level of intoxication. One of the only things he said that actually formed a real sentence or phrase was his shouting “Everybody living life.”
Of course, social media had to go in on him. See what they had to say below.

Just seen a video of Nas drunk at a Las Vegas show, forgetting the words to “If I Ruled The World”. Bro, Lauryn Hill didn’t almost evade the IRS for this.— 𝕓𝕣𝕠𝕜𝕖𝕝𝕪𝕟𝕚𝕥𝕖 (@nuffsaidNY) May 27, 2018
