This Saturday, February 22nd, Hip Hop Legend Nas will take the stage at the 2014 Soulfrito Urban Latin Music Festival. The urban music festival returns this year, following a six year hiatus, and will take place at the Miami Dolphin's Sun Life Stadium.

The festival has been instrumental in the rise of Reggeaton music and some of it's biggest stars including Pit Bull. This year's festival will feature Nas as the headliner who is also celebrating the 20th anniversary of his debut album, Illmatic. Other performers include Don Omar who is also headlining the event, as well as rappers Juicy J and Bust Rhymes, Reggaeton duo Plan B, and more.
