Not everyone was fortunate enough to make it out to this year’s TriBeca Film Festival where Nas’ Time Is Illmatic made its grand premiere. Luckily, Showtime’s picked up the 74-minute film and is slated to air it this coming Friday.
Viewers will get an inside look at Nasir’s upbringing in Queens, NY, which set the tone for his landmark debut album, Illmatic. The pic, directed by One9 and scripted by Erik Parker, also features commentary from Pharrell Williams, Q-Tip and many more.
Watch the trailer, below. Tune into Showtime Friday, Dec. 12 at 9 p.m.
