Erik Parker, One 9 & Nas film documentary, Time Is Illmatic, takes you into the heart of Nas’ creative process for his groundbreaking and undisputed classic debut (Illmatic) and it is a thrilling account of his evolution from a young street poet to a visionary emcee. Pete Rock pays homage with his brand new Time Is Illmatic mixtape.
Pete Rock’s new Time Is Illmatic mixtape includes contributions from the holy trinity of producers who contributed to Illmatic (Large Professor, Pete Rock, Q-Tip, DJ Premier, L.E.S.) and brings things full circle twenty years after Illmatic’s release.
Pete Rock adds “I was motivated to produce this mixtape because Time Is Ilmatic is a part of hip hop history that everyone should know about; and have in both their music and now film collection.”
