BET’S NEW BIOPIC WILL SHOW US WHAT ‘NAS IS LIKE’
Thursday, Feb 2, 2017
BETis now making a miniseries about Nas! The New Edition Storywas such a success that BET is moving forward with another biopic miniseries, and we couldn’t be happier about their choice.
The miniseries will be called Street Dreams and Nas is set to executive produce so you know we are going to get the nitty gritty details and all.
It will take place in the 1990s in New York following Nas’ come up from the hood to fame. The Wackness director Jonathan Levine is set to direct this as well and while Nas is no stranger to acting, he will not be starring in the film.
This project has been a long time coming for Nas as he told Rolling Stone in 2014 after promising its release:
“I’m hands-on with everything, so this show is 100 percent authentic. Even if I don’t look cool in it, I just want it to be real and raw. I didn’t see this as a full autobiography at first. But I have so much that’s happened in my life already, there was no room for fantasy. I wanted it to be entertaining, but everything from my life seemed to be so strong. It’s all reality. There’s nothing from my life I didn’t want in there.”
