MEETING OF THE DONS: Nas, Mark Zuckerberg & Billionaire Investor Ben Horowitz Have Dinner Together
Oh, to be a fly on THAT billion dollar wall. Nasty Nas may be making some serious social media moves after pics surfaced from a random yet intriguing dinner last night with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg & MAJOR investor Ben Horowitz.
Check out what the trio was up to inside...
39-year-old "The Don" rapper Nas broke bread last night with a couple of the most powerful men in the tech game--28-year-old billionaire CEO Mark Zuckerberg (with his wife Priscilla) and 46-year-old hi-tech entrepreneur/billionaire venture capitalist Ben Horowitz.
And if you're wining and dining with billionaires, we can only assume (at least we HOPE) that at least one person was talking money at that table.
Pics surfaced on Instagram from a private dinner that took place last night with the interesting trio. Details of their convo have yet to be released, but we do conclude it has something to do with Nas' involvement in Facebook, which Mark owns and Ben has invested in via his filthy rich firm Andreessen Horowitz.
Another random fact we've noticed, Ben has often referenced on his Twitter account his recent investment in the hip hop lyric decoder site Rap Genius. He posted an article about how the sensemaking of internet information--i.e. rap lyrics (like the Rap Genius site)--is one of his firm's investment focuses. Interestingly, Ben posted a pic with Nas at a Rap Genius function last July. So the two are not total strangers.
Also, Ben already has a close relationship with Jay-Z & Steve Stoute. So he's not a complete stranger to the hip hop world.
Will Nas be investing some dollars of his own into Facebook, Inc? Is he cutting some type of major money making social media deal with the head honchos? Or both?
Time will tell, but we're guessing Mr. Jones is gearing up to cash out on a deal either way....
