Nas At Time Is Ilmatic Premiere

The Tribeca Film Festival opened with the Nas documentary Time Is Illmatic. Robert Deniro, who co-founded the festival, introduced the Erik Parker and One9 film about Nas’s Ilmatic and let the crowd know he was 20 years too early to appreciate hip-hop. Nas later took to the stage and talked about the creation of the album and performed some of the songs. There is no word yet on seeing the film outside of the festival, but if you are in New York you can view it this weekend.
