Stephen Curry grabbed the nation's attention Thursday night when he hit a crazy shot to send the Warriors into overtime against the Pelicans. One person who took notice was rapper Nasir "Nas" Jones.

Nas posted a photo on Instagram where he put Curry's face on his famous Illmatic album cover.

Instead of Illmatic, the album is changed to Automatic due to Curry's incredible abilities. He really is automatic, though. A report earlier this month claimed Curry made 77 consecutive 3-pointers during a practice session. 

Before we go giving Nas too much artistic credit here, the image actually belongs to Jesse Nuñez, who created a series of hip-hop and NBA mashup covers

Nas didn't even need to add a caption on the photo. Being honored by Nas on what is one of the most celebrated albums in hip hop history is a great achievement for Curry. He's already been name-dropped by Drake in 0 to 100 and now he has Nas' blessings.
