West hosted a lavish dinner at Miss Lily's Jamaican restaurant but without his pregnant girlfriend, socialite Kim Kardashian.
The guest list also included some popular artists like magician David Blaine, Kim's best friend Jonathan Chebar and her older sister Kourtney's boyfriend, Scott Disick, reports a website.
Nas shared a photo of the three rappers on Twitter, and wrote, “Yeezus x Hov x Godson... The 3 Gods. Happy Birthday to my brotha Kanye! (sic)”
West had to celebrate his birthday in New York because he was due to take to the stage at the Governor's Ball.
Kanye and Kim, dating since 2012, are expecting their first child, a baby girl, early next month.
