Have you thought about Nas lately? You know, the rapper who really wanted you to know what "Nas Is Like."
He was suspended in the seventh grade for stabbing a kid in the neck with a pencil. A yellow No. 2 pencil, to be exact. By the eighth grade, he dropped out of school.
So, how did this young kid from Queensbridge become one of the greatest rappers of all time? Through hard work and dedication to his craft, that's how. Not to mention a great business acumen.
Not only has the artist since snagged 13 Grammy nominations and released 11 albums, but he's also slaying the investment game.
