Nas’ Time Is Illmatic film is coming to a theater near you.

Tribeca Film recently announced that they’ve acquired the rights to the Queensbridge native’s eye-opening documentary, planning a theatrical debut in October, along with performances in select cities.

“With Time is Illmatic, Erik and I wanted to celebrate Nas’ groundbreaking album, Illmatic, and shed light on the socio-economic conditions that created it. Most importantly, we wanted to show how one piece of art gave hope to those searching for their voice in America,” said co-filmmaker One9 in a statement. “We are confident that our partnership with Tribeca will give the proper platform for this important American experience.”
