Here is the trailer for an upcoming minie-movie on Nas and his understanding of the mixtape culture as part of the TDK Chronicles. Directed by Jonathan Mannion, the piece is set to drop on January 19th. Here's the scoop:
Nas carved some time out of his busy schedule to catch up with us and drop knowledge about his experiences and memories of making and collecting mixtapes. We caught up with Nas at Silvercup Studios, appropriately located in his hometown of Queens, NY. Nas goes deep reminiscing about cassettes, mixtapes and musical influences (Tribe Called Quest, MC Shan, Kurtis Blow & Queen, just to name a few) while reflecting on his early life in the Queensbridge housing projects.
