Next Tuesday, Sept. 30th, Nas, the filmmakers behind Nas: Time Is Illmatic, and the Tribeca Film Fest, are holding a very special one-night-only movie screening….40 different theaters spread across 29 different cities. And the MissInfo.Tv crew is honored to be able to give a pair of screening passes to one lucky reader in NYC, Chicago, Toronto, Portland, Atlanta, and Houston!

UPDATE: We’ve seen some hilarious throwback photos but to make it easier for folks who don’t have access to their baby photos, lol…until we choose the winner on Monday….here’s how you can enter to win the tickets:
1) Follow us on Instagram: @MissInfo
2) Email us with: your name, city, and the artist that you’d like to see us feature more on MissInfo.TV

Check out more details, and the #TBTIllmatic throwbacks that we collected from the crew — Eskay, Meka, Laura Stylez, Nation, and more…

You already know how I feel about Nas’ 1994 debut Illmatic…but I can’t rave enough about this film that Erik Parker, One9, Martha Diaz and others devoted 10 years to make. Along with the rare Nas footage…the larger story about what it was like to be a kid in the Queensbridge projects in the early 90’s is fascinating, heartbreaking, and inspiring. Seriously.

So…I urge you to either 1) win these tickets, or 2) buy tickets to one of the screenings via TribecaFilm.com, or 3) watch Nas: Time Is Illmatic at home via On Demand or iTunes starting Friday, Oct. 3rd. You can peep all 40 screening locations and details after the jump….

Good luck!

TO WIN THESE TICKETS…1) Find a 1994-era throwback photo of yourself. 2) Post it on Instagram with the hashtag #TBTIllmatic #MissInfoTV. 3) Email us at MissInfo@MissInfo.TV with your IG post and your name and city (NYC, Chicago, Toronto, Portland, ATL, or Houston). We will pick the winner and contact you.
