Fresh off of dropping a brand new album, Hip-Hop legend Nas is expanding the business side of his persona now more than ever before.
Amazon Enters Pharmaceuticals
Recently, Amazon announced a takeover of a pharmacy startup that specialised in automating deliveries of pharmaceuticals across regions of America. They specialized in door to door selling and refilling. The aim of the startup was to streamline access to medications.

Nas’ Venture Capital firm – Queensbridge Venture Partners – was an early backer to the startup named “PillPack”. The deal was priced at 1 Billion USD. This move has made the major stakeholders of the company very rich.
Although official numbers haven’t been rolled out, it is without a doubt that Nas has secured the money bags on this deal. Amazon was looking for ways to carve into the pharmaceutical industry and this move basically opened the front door.
The Queensbridge bred artist is proving time and again that his moves are extremely entrepreneurial and calculated. We wish Nas the best in his business ventures!
