If you haven’t seen Nas: Time Is Illmatic yet, you’ve officially run out of excuses. Directed by multimedia artist One9 and written by Erik Parker, the documentary revisits the release of Nas’s groundbreaking debut album ‘Illmatic’ twenty years later.
Movie and music fans alike will enjoy Nas’ candid stories of his upbringing in Queensbridge, the people who inspired him and the challenges he faced before signing with a major label at age 19. Audiences will also hear directly from Nas’s family, friends and peers (like Pharrell Williams and Alicia Keys!) about his transformation from a young street poet to hip hop icon.
