If you’re a fan of legendary Queensbridge rapper Nasir Jones a.k.a. Nas, then this one’s for you!
Nas and BET have announced a new miniseries on the legendary rapper’s journey from New York City’s Queensbridge projects to the Billboard charts.
Deadline reports the project is headed by Rush creator Jonathan Levine — with Nas, Anthony Saleh, Jamie Patricof and Lynette Howell expected as the executive producers. Aside from penning the script, Levine will also direct the series.
The pilot is tentatively titled Street Dreams, an hour-long series on the life of Nasir Jones, which will cover the music, family and the trials and tribulations the hip-hop legend endured as an aspiring rapper in New York City. – via vibe
An autobiography on the life of Nas is a great idea but we’re not sure BET is the network to pull it off. To keep it 100, BET movies are usually cheesy as hell so we hope they don’t screw this up! We’ll keep you posted on its release date as more details emerge.
