Nas, the rap mogul, songwriter and actor, will soon add shoe store owner to his resume. The Queens native is set to bring 12AM Run, a new Las Vegas-based sneaker boutique to The LINQ, a $550 million open-air retail, dining and entertainment district. The new space, which will play host to a number of sneaker and apparel brands, is set to open its doors some time in March.
We recently caught up with Nas in Los Angeles to discuss the origin of the store, how the idea of creating a new boutique came about and what we can expect from 12AM Run. In today’s video interview, Nice Kicks’ own George Kiel sits down with Nas along with co-owner Nick Sakai to discuss everything you need to know about the latest sneaker boutique on the block, 12AM Run.
