Fed up with the typical drivel on television? Pissed that “must see” TV is more miss than hit? Need an escape from awful reality TV and shows about every single member of the Kardashians? Can I interest you in some Nasty Nas?
“As Nas marks the 20th anniversary of his groundbreaking debut album Illmatic, a half-hour series project loosely based on his life as a hip hop artist in the 1990s is getting off the ground with a deal at XBox Entertainment Studios.”
It’s like Seinfeld meets Scared Straight!
It’s like Friends meets The Wire!
It’s like The Big Bang Theory except everyone is black, raps, sells drugs and tinkers with science as a way to make much more powerful drugs to sell.
Alright, it’s nothing like those things, but I’d DVR any one of those shows.
“Titled Street Dreams, the project, from Jamie Patricof and Lynette Howell’s Electric City Entertainment (The Place Beyond The Pines), is set in the 1990s in Long Island’s Queensbridge housing complex, where Nas grew up, and takes a look at music, family and the trials and tribulations of the rap game. Street Dreams is now being developed, with Nas involved in the writing and music.”
Right now, The Mentalist! Later…Street Dreams! Hang onto your Depends old people. CBS Mondays!
