The beautifully written and shot documentary “Time is Illmatic” made its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival this week. The film, written by Erik Parker and directed by One9, chronicles the making of Nas’s historic debut album just in time for its 20th anniversary, and we’ll have more on the film soon. For now, take a look at this live performance and listen to a streaming version of the album in its entirety.
