Look who’s 40!
Indeed, ‘One Mic’ maestro Nas rang in the big 4-0 with a star-studded birthday bash this week in New York City with ‘Thank God I Found You’ co-star/pop icon Mariah Carey.
With rapper Common, Melanie Fiona, Tyson Beckford, Jermaine Dupri, and many more on hand to fill out the distinguished guest list, the private dinner boasted a more formal dress code while elsewhere wailer Jennifer Hudson brought her bday in with a costume heavy, retro-themed celebration in Chicago.
As fellow R&B songstresses Keke Wyatt and Tweet boogied through the night, the evening brought with it a colorful homage to the 80s/90s while JHud celebrated her 32nd bday.

Speaking on the duet, Caillat told fans via her website: “[Common] ended up singing his song ‘The Light,’ and he needed a girl singer [for the chorus] and I was like, ‘I know it!.’” Later adding, “It took about a year for us to get something together, but it worked out better than we could have imagined.”
