Nas Announces BET Mini Series About His Life Story

Nas and BET have announced a new miniseries on the legendary rapper’s journey from New York City’s Queensbridge projects to the Billboard charts.

Deadline reports the project is headed by Rush creator Jonathan Levine — with Nas, Anthony Saleh, Jamie Patricof and Lynette Howell expected as the executive producers. Aside from penning the script, Levine will also direct the series.

The pilot is tentatively titled Street Dreams, an hour-long series on the life of Nasir Jones, which will cover the music, family and the trials and tribulations the hip-hop legend endured as an aspiring rapper in New York City.

Deals are still being finalized on the project.
