Nas Celebrates A Milestone: Rapper Set To Release

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".
    via MTV
    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.

Nas & Lauryn Hill Announce ‘Life Is Good/Black Rage’ Tour

    Nas and Lauryn Hill hitting the road together? I don’t know about this Nas, being that Ms. Hill is known to wig out and cancel shows!! But then again, sista girl owes Uncle Sam money, so maybe she’ll be present at all shows!!
    The U.S tour will kick off on October 6th in Columbia, Maryland with Nas only. Then the two artists will link in Dallas, TX on October 29th. That show, as with a few other dates, will only feature Nas. The first show with Lauryn Hill and Nas will be in Dallas, Texas on October 29th.
    According to Rapup.com the tour shares its name with Nas’ latest album Life Is Good and “Black Rage,” a new song by Ms. Hill about the derivative effects of racial inequity and abuse. The record, which will be released this fall, is described by Ms. Hill as a juxtaposition to the statement “life is good,” which she believes can only be so when these long standing issues are addressed and resolved.
    “This is history,” said Nas. “Better late than never. Life is good!”
    Tickets go on sale this Friday, with a pre-sale in select markets Today.
