HIP HOP IS FINDING ITS WAY TO TELEVISION AND I LOVE IT!
BET hit it off with the success of “The New Edition Story” miniseries and will now be picking up an hour-long series, “Street Dreams”, inspired by the life of Nas. The show will take place in the 90’s in New York City, Queens, to be exact. The show will display how Nas dealt with life as a young man, crack dealer, rapper, and adult. Nas will serve as the executive producer for “Street Dreams” and will be directed by Jonathan Levine.
“I’m hands-on with everything, so this show is 100 percent authentic,” Nas said about the show. “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.”
