NAS: #TimeisIllmatic #free #Detroit Premiere Film #Screening & Discussion

Thursday, October 9 at 3 pm

JUST ADDED: The Detroit premiere of the documentary NAS: Time is Illmatic. Twenty years after the release of Nas’s groundbreaking debut album ‘Illmatic,’ this new documentary takes us into the heart of his creative process. 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 – and the obstacles he faced before his major label signing at age 19. Featuring interviews with his ‘Illmatic’ producers (Large Professor, Pete Rock, Q-Tip, L.E.S., and DJ Premier) and musical peers (including Pharrell Williams and Alicia Keys), “Nas: Time Is Illmatic” is a thrilling account of Nas’ evolution from a young street poet to a visionary MC. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Piper Carter of 5e Gallery. Free. LIMITED SEATING – RSVP by emailing RSVP@chwmuseum.org or calling (313) 494-5856.
