Illmatic arguably the greatest hip-hop album of all time is celebrating it’s 20 year anniversary next week with an album reissue ( IllmaticXX) and a documentary (Time Is Illmaic) on the making of the groundbreaking project.  Nas will premiere the documentary on April 16 at the 2014 Tribeca film festival. Directed by One9 and written by Erik Parker, the feature-length film “delves into the making of Illmatic; the social conditions that created it; and the music legacy passed down from Nas’ Mississippi-born father and celebrated jazz musician, Olu Dara.”
