Shout out to my Spelman sister Tosha Whitten-Griggs and one of my Momentum babies Daralynn Hutson for the invite to: NAS: TIME IS ILLMATIC! A quote from LIFE OF RILEY:
"AS A HUGE FAN OF TV ONE'S "UNSUNG" and a recurring pop culture analyst on shows like "LIFE AFTER" and "ARISE 360", I believe film and TV will teach a nation of fans the stories of our modern icons - like NAS. "NAS: TIME IS ILLMATIC" is one such vehicle that takes someone as old as me on an ease down the yellow brick road of my memory lane with stops in Kansas (Queensbridge); hook ups with a slew of lions, tigers, and bears (from Q-Tip to Pharrell and Alicia Keys). What a well-done vehicle that promises to inspire a nation the way NAS did when he launched onto the scene as a young street poet to now, an ICON! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
