Nas Celebrates A Milestone: Rapper Set To Release “Time is Illmatic” Documentary At Tribeca Film Festival

    Illmatic was/is the blueprint for many rappers coming up in the game after Nasty Nas. The album was a classic and I am eager to see the documentary “Time Is Illmatic”.

    It’s hard to believe that it’s been 20 years since Nas dropped Illmatic, on April 19 1994, so the Queens rapper is celebrating the milestone with a little refresher course on his debut album.

    Three days ahead of the LP’s anniversary date, on April 16, Nas will kick off the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival with the premiere of his new documentary “Time is Illmatic.” The film, produced by One9, Anthony Saleh and Erik Parke, retraces his influences and journey to create the album, and explores its lasting effect on hip-hop culture, which has already spanned two decades.

    Nas will follow the premiere with a live performance of the entire album, making it a pretty special event.

    In addition to debuting his documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival, the Queensbridge rapper will also drop Illmatic XX in April, featuring both original and remixed versions of the songs that appeared on his original album.

    Still, that’s not all. Nas will be rolling out a new, half-hour autobiographical drama series called called “Street Dreams” on Xbox. The series will be set in the 90s in Queens, New York and follow the early stages of his career. A premiere date hasn’t been announced as yet.

    The Kang of the south and the Snowman may link up and give us a duet album very soon!! I'm here for this!! They both make trap music but with different deliveries which can result into hotness.
    In an exclusive interview with Billboard, T.I. says he's ready to get started on "Dope Boy Academy" which I am assuming would be the title of the album. This year duet albums were the way to go. We had 21 Savage & Offset and as of recent Fabolous and Jadakiss released their highlyanticipated project.

    Hip-Hop Mogul JAY Z had an interview with Dean Baquet for T Magazine, where he discussed being black in Trump's America, therapy, his relationships with wife Beyoncé and former friend Kanye West.
    It's no secret that Ye and Jay are no longer on the best of terms. However in this interview Jay elaborated on the complicated relationship;
    "Hopefully when we're 89 we look at this six months or whatever time and we laugh at that. You know what I'm saying? There's gonna be complications in the relationship that we have to get through. And the only way to get through that is we sit down and have a dialogue and say, 'These are the things that I'm uncomfortable with. These are the things that are unacceptable to me. This is what I feel.' I'm sure he feels that I've done things to him as well,"
