If Nas’ biopic is anything similar to “The New Edition Story” on BET, it’s going to be AMAZING!
According to reports, BET has confirmed an ‘hour’ long series about the life of Hip Hop legend and icon ‘Nasir Jones’, titled “Sweet Dreams” named after his 1996 track off of the “It Was Written” album.
Jonathan Levine will direct the show, which will chronicle the life Nas’ project based upbringing!
“Set against the backdrop of a turbulent New Your City in the early 90’s, Sweet Dream, named after Nas’ breakout 1996 hit song, was originally set at the now— defunct Xbox Entertainment Studios as a half-hour comedy two years ago. Described as a show about music, family, and about the trials and tribulations of the rap game, it tracks the ascent of Nas, a young man from the Queensbridge projects who will go on to become a famous rapper, as he evolves from young man to crack dealer to rapper to adult.”
In our opinion, this biopic is WAYYYYYY over due! Now all we need is one for Jay-Z?!
