All-new interviews with Nas, DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Large Professor, Illmatic executive producer Faith Newman and Miss Info (who actually penned The Source magazine review that awarded the LP “5 mics” while still a fledgling journalist). Amongst the backstories revealed: how Nas convinced a reluctant Pete Rock to sing the hook on “The World Is Yours,” how Pete’s beat inspired Premier to alter his production on “Represent,” Premier’s recollection of the first verse/one take session for “NY State of Mind,” and more. Also features some priceless and rare footage of Nas and Biggie circa ’94, and Nas with Main Source circa ’91.
