Experience wide-open pastures, farm animals, guitar music, cowboy hats, and all things country in this debut picture book that’s perfect for music lovers learning their ABCs and for anyone who loves Nas’s signature genre-blending style.”
As if that’s not enough to excite the young star’s fans, he’s also been announced the face of Christian Cowan‘s Spring 2021 collection.
