Nas Steps in As Co-Owner of Escobar Cigars

By Kiani Belgrave

Nas is officially the co-owner of Escobar Cigars, a company he was previously invested in. 

Nas has garnered quite the investment portfolio over the years. The Queens emcee has his hand in a plethora of different companies, including SeatGeek, PlutoTV, Dropbox, General Assembly, and Robinhood, making him one of hip-hop's most accomplished entrepenuaers. 

Now, Nas is back with another colossal move, officially becoming the co-owner of the appropriately titled Escobar Cigars. Before stepping into the co-owner position, Nas was an investor in the tobacco company for the past three years. 

"When the team at Escobar Cigars initially approached me, I was immediately drawn to the brand by the exceptional quality of their product,” Nas explained in a press release. “This partnership with Escobar has been almost two years in the making, and I am honored to be an equity partner with them.”
