Nas surely wasn’t his best at a recent performance in Las Vegas.

The Queensbridge rapper was in the city for an appearance for the grand opening of the Apex Social Club and was performing a set at the Palms Casino Resort. However, Nas’ set didn’t last long as he appeared to be so drunk that he struggled to rap his own songs.

In a video captured by a fan and shared via TMZ, the rapper can be seen swaying side to side as he rambles through the lyrics of “It Ain’t Hard To Tell” and states that he’s “the greatest Virgo to ever live … besides Doug E. Fresh.” According to attendees present, Nas’ set only lasted 10 minutes before he proclaimed “I’m just happy…Shout out to everybody living life” and left the stage.

A month ago, Kelis spoke on her marriage to Nas where she revealed the reason why she divorced him while pregnant with their son.

“A lot of mental and physical abuse,” Kelis said to Hollywood Unlocked CEO Jason Lee. “It got to the point where if I wasn’t pregnant, I might have stayed with him. I was pregnant and it was a mess and I felt like I wasn’t going to bring a child into this.”

Nas also has a new album coming out on June 15. Not much is known about the project except that Kanye West is producing it.
