Last night, ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live was host to some of the most memorable Nas moments of this year. Along with a surprisingly candid interview where we learned a bit about Nas' mysterious creative process (namely why he hasn't released an album in almost a half-decade) and a great performance, we got to see where Nas' pop culture knowledge is at, as he squared off against the artist formerly known as "Chandler" from Friends.

That's right, while Nas was joined by Erykah Badu for a great rendition of "This Bitter Land" (from The Land soundtrack), the big story of the night was Nas' stellar performance in a game of "Name That Famous Celebrity" against Matthew L. Perry. By knowing his Pharrell and his Eastwood, Nas ethered the contest.
