- Nas as Himself
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.S., 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.
