(AllHipHop News) Rap star Nas sure knows how to pick his investments. The rapper’s Queensbridge Venture Partners has scored another huge payday, with the acquisition PillPack. Earlier today, Amazon announced it was purchasing PillPack,  which is an online pharmacy that streamlined the delivery of medication to patients in all 50 states in the U.S.

Queensbridge Venture Partners participated in a funding round with seven other investors back in 2014, raising a total of $8.8 million.
