TFF 2014: TIME IS ILLMATIC


Thursday, April 17, 2014

We had the chance to attend opening night at The Tribeca Film Festival last night. The evening consisted of the premier of Nas’ new documentary as well as a live performance of Illmatic from start to finish. It was an inspiring event that shed some light on Nas’ childhood in Queensbridge, NYC. His amazing story set the stage for a phenomenal performance.

Alicia Keys opened up the concert for Nas. He did a great, low key performance, interspersed with anecdotes. It was deeply moving to hear the story of a young boy who dropped out of school after Grade 8, made it out of one of North America’s largest government housing projects and is now a role model for a new generation.

Check out Time is Illmatic at TFF and give the 20th Anniversary Re-issue of Illmatic a listen. The album has earned its rightful place in music history.
