Nas Continues Celebrating 'Illmatic' With Announcement Of Tour Dates & Screenings

Nas Gold Chain Mass Appeal

Earlier this year, I had the distinct pleasure of attending the inaugural screening of Time Is Illmatic, a documentary about Nas' debut album Illmatic, at New York's Tribeca Film Festival. The documentary itself was an amazing, in-depth film that probed Nas' early years and all that went into the creation of the now seminal album. As if that weren't enough, though, as the doc ended, the screen went up and Nasty Nas proceeded to rock the crowd with a performance of Illmatic in its entirety. The experience was such a great one that I wished that everyone had a chance to experience it the same way.

Looks like Nas had the same idea, as he's just announced a spate of tour dates, most of which will see both a screening of Time Is Illmatic followed by a performance of the LP from front to back (unfortunately shows in Rochester, NY; Lincoln, NE and Las Vegas won't get the double feature treatment) . The tour will take place over 15 dates and 15 cities during the month of October. If you're a true hip-hop head and you have yet to witness this glorious event, check out the tour dates and venues below and be sure to grab yourself a ticket as soon as they're available.
