Nas and Kelis Tie The Knot

Published: 2005-01-12
After a two year long engagement, rapper Nas, 31, and New York singer/songwriter Kelis, 24, finally got hitched. The low-key ceremony took place in Atlanta this past Saturday (January 8th), with just family and close friends in attendance, according to Nas' father Olu Dara was present, and his brother Jungle played the role of best man.

The couple first met in the most romantic of hip hop settings: a 2002 MTV Awards after-party hosted by none other than P. Diddy. The pair were engaged the following Christmas at Kelis' mother's house.

On the music side of things, Nas' most recent release comes in the form of the double-disc 'Street's Disciple'. Released through Sony Urban Music/Columbia in November of 2004, the record features 26 tracks. Kelis 2003 album 'Tasty' provided the singer with her biggest hit - 'Milkshake'. The record is her third, and helped to propel her into North American minds, as well as further her place in the UK, which seems to be her biggest market.

I think that it is great that Kelis & Nas got married. (Congratulations). We need more African-American couples in this show-biz industry being committed. Its too often you see people out there doing stupid stuff like cheating. My best wishes to the Hip/Hop newlyweds. Peace, Love & Happiness.
