Can you name this grocery store that was, for at least a few moments, the coolest place on Earth? I'm guessing it's the Belle Meade Kroger, since we know that Nas and The Beastie Boys were shooting a video around Centennial Park back in June. I'm gonna guess that they just drove down West End cuz they've got valet parking (at a grocery store WTF?!?) and I assume that the odds of somebody recognizing Nasty Nas and the Beasties in the heart of whiteness are slim to none.
If they had gone to the Kroger at the corner of Paragon Mills and Nolensville that shit would have been a small scale riot--a logistical hassle to say the least. I'm assuming that four middle-aged men rapping in the produce section was just met with blank stares in Belle Meade. Who knows though, as all we've got are an unmastered leak of "Too Many Rappers" and a still photo--it could be in Hermitage, it could be in Hendersonville. Frankly, I can't tell one grocery store from the next. If you've got any info, leave it in the comments or email cream[at]nashvillescene.com
