BET is coming for the whole bag!
On the heels of their epic New Edition miniseries, the network has announced they have greenlit a 1990’s pilot based on the life of Hip Hop living legend, Nas.
Here’s the scoop via Deadline:
Set against the backdrop of a turbulent New York City in the early 90’s, Street Dreams, 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.
Oh, I am SO here for this!!
