For those out of the loop, Nas‘ timeless classic Illmatic turns a whopping 20 years old this year, officially removing the debut record from its adolescence. And what better way to commemorate that monumental release than with a feature-length documentary chronicling the making of the record and tracing its influence over the years. The film will make its debut at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival on April 16th, just 3 days shy of the 20th anniversary mark. After the film’s debut, Nas will promptly be taking the stage to perform the entirety of his debut record from start to finish. If you’ve got plans to be there already, you lucked out. If not, make sure you cop a ticket. In the meantime, brace yourself for the commemorative 20th anniversary reissue of the record, complete with unspecified bonus materials.
