Nas Chronicles His Journey to Fame in ‘Time Is Illmatic’ Trailer
Legendary rapper Nas has released a trailer for his highly anticipated documentary, 'Time Is Illmatic.'
Starting from the early days, the film will take viewers on a journey from Nas' humble beginnings in Queens to the moment when he was signed to Columbia Records and ultimately recorded his classic 1994 album 'Illmatic.'
From Nas' father, jazz artist Olu Dara Jones, to producers and fellow artists like Pharrell Williams, Alicia Keys and Busta Rhymes, everyone speaks highly of the rapper and his influential album.
"I had a passion for music and that was going to be my out," said Nas in the clip.
Making its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, Nas announced that he will take the film on the road and visit 14 cities in the fall. The tour will kick off in Rochester, N.Y., on Oct. 2 and wrap up Oct. 19 in Oakland, Calif.
