In his recent film, documentary filmmaker One9 delves deep into the making of Nas’ 1994 debut album, Illmatic, and the social conditions that influenced its creation. Twenty years after its release, Illmatic has become a hip-hop benchmark that encapsulates the socio-political outlook, enduring spirit, and collective angst of a generation of young African-American men searching for their voice.

With Live Performance by Canadian hip-hop artist, K-Riz.
