Nas: Time Is Illmatic
Twenty years after the release of Nas's groundbreaking debut album "Illmatic," Nas: Time is Illmatic takes US into the heart of his creative process. Returning to his childhood home in Queensbridge, Nas shares stories of his upbringing, his influences - from the music of his jazz musician father Olu Dara to the burgeoning hip hop scene in new York city - and the obstacles he faced before his major label signing at age 20. Featuring interviews with his "Illmatic" producers (Large Professor, Pete Rock Q-Tip, L.E.E., and DJ Premier) and musical peers (including Pharrell Williams and Alicia Keys), Nas Time is Illmatic is a thrilling account of Nas's evolution from a young street poet to a visionary MC.
