Nas Delivers ‘Represent’ Video

Subscribe to TheBoombox on

With the 20-year anniversary of Nas‘ ‘Illmatic’ being the talk of hip-hop this year, it only makes sense to release a video for one of the album’s standout tracks, ‘Represent’

Thanks to a contest held by Mass Appeal magazine, one fan got to direct the visual. Brian Katz created the video by mixing old Nas footage with clips from the 1924 film ‘The Thief of Bagdad.’

“As someone who has had ‘Illmatic’ in heavy rotation for the past 20 years, the opportunity to represent as a true fan in sharing my vision with Nas and have Jason Goldwatch help bring that vision to reality is proof positive that indeed ‘The World is Yours,” said Katz in a statement to the press.

The clip also shows a laid-back Nas sipping on an alcoholic beverage and puffing on a cigar, as he takes in his surroundings.

The legendary rapper was heavily involved in deciding who the winning video director was.
