Music & Film| Watch the Official Trailer for Nas’ Documentary ‘Time is Illmatic’


• Twenty years after the release of Nas’ groundbreaking debut album Illmatic, the documentary feature Time is Illmatic takes viewers on an all-access journey into the heart of his creative process at the time of the recording. 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 producers who intimately worked on the project including Large Professor, Pete Rock, Q-Tip, L.E.S. and DJ Premier, additional commentary comes from musical peers Pharrell Williams and Alicia Keys. The film hits theaters on October 1 in limited release and On Demand on October 3.
