"I Wanted to Do Illmatic to Leave My Voice as Proof that I was Here." Concert Details and an Official Trailer for Nas' Documentary

After wowing audiences at this year's Tribeca Film Festival, we finally get to see an official trailer for rapper Nas' documentary, NAS: TIME IS ILLMATIC. For those of you who are uber fans of the artist--particularly his most celebrated album, Illmatic--will especially enjoy watching him reminisce on his childhood in Queens, challenges he faced and the people who have influenced him, including his musician father Olu Dara.

The clip also features interviews with other artists like Alicia Keys and Pharrell Williams, and footage from the making of his now 20-year-old album. But what is actually the most exciting part of this to me is that, coinciding with the documentary's theatrical release on October 1st, Nas will embark on a 14-city U.S. tour, performing the album in its entirety at each stop. Check out the tour dates below:
