Nas invited a select group of guests and celebrity friends to hear his 11th album, Nasir, for the first time.

The record (produced by Kanye West), was given its first airing in the historic hip-hop borough of Queens, NYC. Beneath the Queensboro Bridge, invitees turned out in their droves. And, of course, there were plenty of recognizable faces in the crowd, with the G.O.O.D. Music clan showing up in support along with Kim Kardashian, Big Boi, 2 Chainz, Chris Rock, and others.

For those who couldn’t attend, record label Mass Appeal captured the event via an exclusive livestream, while plenty of those at the soirée filmed a few clips of their own. For a full breakdown of what happened at the Nasir listening party, read on below.
