You could call this year 2014, but in the future we’ll probably just call it the year Illmatic turned 20. Either one works.
Earlier in the year, Nas reissued Illmatic as a double-disc and announced a Time Is Illmatic tour that starts October 2nd. With that tour comes the wider release of the highly anticipated documentary, Time Is Illmatic, that he premiered at the TriBeca Film Festival back in April.
The documentary looks to be an in-depth investigation of Nas’ childhood, background, musical influences and environment surrounding the making of the classic QB album. In the trailer you can see early footage of Nas in Queensbridge, as well as interviews with all the album’s producers and newer Nas collaborators like Swizz Beatz, Pharrell, Busta Rhymes, and more.
Watch the stylish trailer above and get ready to experience Illmatic like never before.
