Bevel x Nas

“My signature fade with the Bevel blade

That’s a major key” – Nas

This line has been stuck in my head since I first heard it. It comes from the rapper Nas on the track ‘Nas Album Done’ from DJ Khaled’s Major Key album (released on 29th July 2016). It may be so unforgettable because of the highly recognisable sample of The Fugees track ‘Fu-Gee-La’ or the fact that I initially misheard ‘bevel’ for ‘devil’, which added very sinister touch to the lyric. Anyways, it turns out that Nas is a brand ambassador for Bevel. Bevel is a shaving range from Walker & Company– a company created by Queens-born Tristan Walker to make beauty products for people of colour. It’s worth watching the introduction video on the Walker and Company website to see what the business is all about.

I was privileged enough to see the man himself performing his legendary hip-hop album Illmatic at the Manchester-based Parklife festival in 2015. He was incredible.
