“Visualizin’ the realism, my life in actuality”
Since it’s been a cool 20 years since Nas blessed the American music scene with Illmatic, a documentary was in order. Offering a complete look at the album in ways that few others can, Time Is Illmatic looks to fill any holes in the project’s backstory that still exist.
And even if that’s not necessary for you, expect top-notch gushing from some of the industry’s biggest names. I know it probably won’t happen, but imagine a modern day Jigga stumbling over himself, trying to describe the album’s importance.
Time Is… premieres April 16th at the Tribeca Film Festival, with a nationwide release set to follow. Stay tuned.
