Musical documentary commemorates the twentieth anniversary of Nas's groundbreaking album Illmatic by examining his career and creative process.

New York City-based rapper Nas's debut album Illmatic shifted the paradigm of mainstream hip-hop upon its release in 1994, redefining East Coast hip-hop's sound despite less-than-stellar sales while sparking a heated rivalry with fellow New York rapper Jay-Z. Released to commemorate Illmatic's twentieth anniversary, Nas: Time is Illmatic provides viewers with a look at the rapper's early life in Queensbridge, road to the recording industry, time spent with Illmatic's producers, and creative process.
