Earlier this year, Time is Illmatic, a documentary looking at the making of Nas’ landmark album Illmatic premiered at Tribeca Film Festival. Now, the world gets a taste of the documentary as filmmaker One-9 has released a trailer. By the looks of it, the film is a magnificent piece of work. Take a look at the video below as well as a description of the film.

Here’s the description of Time is Illmatic: “Twenty years after the release of Nass groundbreaking debut album Illmatic, NAS: TIME IS ILLMATIC takes us into the heart of his creative process. Returning to his childhood home in Queensbridge, Nas shares stories of his upbringing, his influences from the music of his jazz musician father Olu Dara to the burgeoning hip-hop scene in New York City and the obstacles he faced before his major label signing at age 20. Featuring interviews with his Illmatic producers Large Professor, Pete Rock, Q-Tip, L.E.S., and DJ Premier and musical peers including Pharrell Williams and Alicia Keys, NAS: TIME IS ILLMATIC is a thrilling account of Nass evolution from a young street poet to a visionary MC.”
