Nas "Time Is Illmatic" Trailer

Twenty years after its debut, we get a glimpse into the creative process of Illmatic and the rapper behind the album. Filmed partially in Nasir Jones’ home in the heart of Queensbridge, New York, "Time is Illmatic" illustrates his upbringing and early influences, including his jazz musician father. It also looks at  the emerging New York rap scene of which he was a big part of in the mid ’90s. 

Featuring interviews from Illmatic producers Q-Tip, Pete Rock, DJ Premier and cameos from frequent collaborators Pharrell Williams and Alicia Keys, Time is Illmatic follows Nas’ journey from an unknown teenager to one of the greatest rap artists of all time. Look for the film in select theatres on October 1.
