Nas Opened Tribeca Film Festival

Rapper Nas kicked off the Tribeca Film Festival with a documentary screening and special performance at New York City’s Beacon Theater.

Raised in Queens, New York, Nas went from eighth-grade dropout to one of hip-hop’s most respected and intelligent rappers. His landmark debut album “Illmatic” just turned 20 years old. The documentary “Time Is Illmatic” captures his life story with rare archival footage,family photos and interviews.

Tribeca became one of the world’s premiere film festivals since it started 12 year ago to revitalize the local economy damaged by 911.  Tribeca co-founder Robert De Niro introduced the film as not just about the making of an album, but “about the making of an artist here in our hometown.”

At the performance set, another New York native Alicia Keys made a surprise appearance and added even more hometown feel.
