'Nas: Time Is Illmatic' Marks The 20th Anniversary Of One Of The Greatest Ever Rap Albums [Trailer]


Nas Pharrell Williams Alicia Keys Busta Rhymes Swizz Beatz

The 1990s marked a turning point for rap and hip hop, with plenty of artists making their mark on the scene with seminal releases. Nas was one of them, and now his landmark debut 'Illmatic' is being explored in a telling documentary, 'Nas: Time Is Illmatic'.

'Time Is Illmatic' explores the legacy of Nas' debut

Like many young black men exposed to rap culture, Nas (born Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones) was forced to live a life of fear and poverty as a youth, with guns and killings being a thing of daily terror. After his early collaborator Ill Will was shot dead and his brother injured in the process, it was time to write an album revealing the truth about ghetto culture - and the fear and rivalry that comes with it. 'Nas: Time Is Illmatic' explores his moving relationship with his parents against the grim backdrop of Queensbridge, as he rose up to become one of the greatest rapstars of all time.

Nas: Time Is Illmatic Trailer


With a jazz musician for a father, Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones grew up in a world of music. Knowing from an early age that he wanted to become a rapper, he took a look at the bleak world around him and set to work on writing an album that would deliver a voice to the unheard generation of young black men in America. The result was 'Illmatic', a 1994 landmark that heralded the second coming of the Golden Era of hip hop and a revival of New York's rap scene.

Jay-Z Gets Choked Up Over His Daughter: "We Still Marvel At Her"


Jay Z Rick Rubin Beyonce Knowles Pharrell Williams Timbaland Swizz Beatz

Rapper Jay-Z appears to be holding back tears whilst talking to producer extraordinaire, Rick Rubin, in a behind-the-scenes video of the making of the rapper's new album. A record producer himself, Jay-Z is married to singer Beyoncé with whom he has a child - 1 year-old Blue Ivy who has clearly had a profound effect upon his creative output as a musician.

Jay Z
A Proud Father: Jay Z Has Admitted He Marvels Over His Daughter, Blue.

Speaking without any intro, Jay-Z (real name, Shaun Carter) tells how his past has affected his present: "My pop left when I was young so he didn't teach me how to be a man or how to raise a child or how to treat a woman. So of course, my karma, the two things I need I don't have. And I have a daughter," he says, adding the paranoia he associates with "not being a great dad."

Jay-Z's 'Magna Carter' Free Downloads For Samsung Won't Count In Album Chart


Jay Z Rick Rubin Pharrell Williams Timbaland Swizz Beatz

It looked as though Jay-Z's next album already had the number one spot wrapped up before it was even released, however the powers at the Official UK Chart have decided that if Jay-Z wants a number one album he's going to have to do it the old fashion way; by selling Magna Carta Holy Grail, rather than just giving it away.

The rapper signed a $5 million deal with phone manufacturers Samsung to provide fans with early access to his upcoming album as well as a free download to the rapper/businessman's newest release. Samsung has purchased a million copies of the album that will be distributed amongst a million Samsung smartphone users on July 4th and should the free downloads count in the charts then it will all but guaranteed it a place at No. 1. Only thing is, now that this won't be the case in the UK, will other countries follow suit?

The Official Charts Company said this week: “Music which consumers receive free of charge, either as physical releases or downloads, have never counted towards the Official Charts and this release will be no different. Legitimate purchases of Jay-Z's album will count, however, as usual.”
