1 hour ago

After 20 years, the mainstream embraced Nas at Wednesday night's start of the Tribeca Film Festival. He embraced it back by abandoning the casual homophobia that some critics have used to write off hip-hop as a means to progress. Nas’ “Illmatic,” the classic 1994 hip-hop album that was the subject of the first film at the festival, holds up extraordinarily well: the lyrics and delivery are complex but precise, the beats grounded and grimy but fluid enough for moments like a stirring trumpet solo by Nas’ jazz musician father.
