Tribeca Films brings us the documentary NAS: TIME IS ILLMATIC. The film will hit theaters for a ONE NIGHT only viewing on October 2nd.

JJ’s Take: 

Last night I had a chance to watch the ‘exclusive’ screening of Nas: Time Is Illmatic and it was so dope!  It was great to see how that incredible album came together as well as taking a look at how Nas became the person he is.  The documentary is a golden nugget of hip hop’s history. I would recommend EVERY see it.  Nas’ story is touching.



Multimedia artist One9’s documentary follows the trajectory of Nas’ 1994 landmark debut album,Illmatic, one of the most important and revolutionary albums in hip hop. Even 20 years after its release, Illmatic is widely recognized as a hip-hop benchmark that captured the sociopolitical outlook, enduring spirit, and collective angst of a generation of young artists searching for their voice in America. Tracing Nas’s influences from the music of his jazz musician father, Olu Dara, to the burgeoning hip-hop scene in his native Queensbridge, Nas: Time is Illmatic describes the almost insurmountable obstacles he faced in creating his opus, providing an authentic and passionate account of Nas’s personal journey from a young street poet to a visionary MC.
