The film will get releases around the world...
Nas' new documentary has earned itself a nice little distribution deal. Variety reports that the rapper's Nas - Time Is Illmatic docu has been picked up by Submarine Films for distribution in Japan, Australia and across Europe. The film has earned high marks from its screenings at the Tribeca Film Festival and Cannes and was already picked up for North American distribution after its Tribeca screening.
The film looks at the release of Nas' landmark 1994 album Illmatic, which had a heavy impact on the direction of hip-hop and is widely considered to be one of the best hip-hop records of all-time. It will release in the US with a theatrical and day-and-date VOD release in October, with the rapper himself doing live performances at some premieres.
