Just one day removed from Mass Appeal’s release of the behind-the-scenes footage, Nas unveils the first ever official music video for the 20th anniversary Illmatic release, “Represent.”

The video itself is representative of the 20 years that have passed since his debut album release, utilizing old footage of a much younger Nasir Jones crossed with a film about the Ancient East and creative animation to capture the essence of the exceptional single. Take a look.
