Twenty years after the release of Nas's landmark debut album "Illmatic," Nas: Time is Illmatic captures the enduring spirit of the young generation that found a voice in his insightful poetry. Returning to his childhood home in Queensbridge, Nas shares stories of his upbringing, his influences--from the music of his jazz musician father Olu Dara to the burgeoning hip hop scene in New York City that was heavily influenced by an era of racial and socio-political inequality--and the obstacles he faced before his major label signing at age 20.
