Nas “Obey Your Thirst”

Nas tells his story with Sprite Documentaries. “There was nothing more important to me than having a voice,” says Nas in the above trailer for his Obey Your Thirst documentary. “I always believed that I could give people my ideas through art.” Considering how mythologized he’s become thanks to his virtuosic lyricism—which earned him a spot 20 years ago in this classic 1997 Sprite ad—it’s a trip to hear what originally drove him to break into the world of hip-hop.
