Watch: Nas performs ‘One Love’ with Q-Tip, Roots on ‘Tonight Show’

Nas, wearing the cap, appeared Monday on “The Tonight Show” to perform his song “One Love,” with Q-Tip and the Roots.

Nas is hustling.

On Saturday night, the veteran New York rapper is scheduled to perform at Coachella, just days before the April 15 release of “Illmatic XX,” a 20th-anniversary reissue of his much-loved 1994 debut.

On April 16, he’ll do “Illmatic” in its entirety following a screening of a new documentary about the album at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival. Then he’ll return to California for an encore Coachella appearance on April 19.


Ahead of all that, though, Nas dropped by “The Tonight Show” on Monday to do “One Love” with the program’s house band, the Roots, and Q-Tip, who produced the original cut on “Illmatic.”
