Behind The Music: Nas to debut on VH1 in April

VH1′s five-time Emmy-nominated documentary series “Behind The Music” returns to focus on six of today’s most influential hip hop/urban artists. This season’s roster includes: Nas, Game, Akon, Pitbull, Brandy and T-Pain. In addition to the dramatic storytelling that made “Behind The Music” a worldwide hit, the series will feature originally shot footage of each artist at work today, anchoring each story in the current day and connecting the past with the present. Behind The Music: Nas tells the story of one of hip hop’s most daring and prolific icons. Raised in the gritty Queensbridge projects of New York City, Nas narrowly escaped his violent surroundings. He later channeled his experiences into a lyrical style that would revolutionize hip hop. A musical legend by the age of 20, Nas’ passion for music has carried him through a tumultuous career. Despite very public distractions including multiple feuds with hip hop’s biggest names, political controversy, a highly publicized divorce with R and B star Kelis, as well as the devastating loss of his mother, Nas’ seven consecutive platinum albums have cemented him as one of the greatest hip hop artists of all time. The special features candid interviews with Nas, members of his family, friends and hip hop luminaries including Russell Simmons, Q-Tip and Common. “Behind the Music: Nas” is the truly unfiltered story of Nasir Jones as it’s never been told before. “Behind The Music: Nas” – premieres Thursday, April 26, 2012 at 9pm ET/PT
