“I got people that stop me in the street to ask me about investment tips more than music,” he shared. “It’s really crazy, man. I met another Black man named Nasir; he’s doing his thing. He told me how I’m inspirational to him in that world of investors and fundraising.
“That’s what I get a lot now. That’s really rewarding. It used to be only, ‘I’m inspired by you to rap,’ which I still hear, and I still love it. But it’s about letting people know, ‘This is what I’m doing. You do it, too.’”
Nas launched his venture capital firm Queensbridge Venture Partners in 2014 with manager Anthony Saleh. The company has made investments built around tech startups and digital currency such as Pluto TV, Ring, Genius and Coinbase to name a few.
