Time is Illmatic

Rapper Nas recalls his youth in his city’s housing projects, his parents’ influence and the recording of his 1994 debut album, `Illmatic.′

Here’s the trailer to Time is Illmatic, a documentary on one of hip hop’s greatest albums. This is important because it takes us on a journey through a kid’s eyes that was 19 when he recorded the perfect album’ (20 years ago). To be that socially aware, and have the talent to express it in such a timeless way, Nas was ahead of his time.
