If you weren’t able to catch the premiere of Nas: Time is Illmatic at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, and you missed it when it opened in theaters back in October, or you’re looking to add to your Nas collection, you will now be able to purchase the feature length documentary on DVD when it hit stores on December 15. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of arguably one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time, Nas released an album reissue (Illmatic XX) of his 1994 classic and debuted this One9 directed film the following day.

In this critically acclaimed documentary the NY legend “recalls his youth in his city’s housing projects, his parents’ influence and the recording of his 1994 debut album, Illmatic.” Check out the exclusive teaser clip in which Nas traces his roots back to Mississippi, and be on the lookout for this perfect holiday gift.
