Nas tells his story with Sprite Documentaries.“There was nothing more important to me than having a voice,” says Nas in the above trailer for his Obey Your Thirst documentary. “I always believed that I could give people my ideas through art.” Considering how mythologized he’s become thanks to his virtuosic lyricism—which earned him a spot 20 years ago in this classic 1997 Sprite ad—it’s a trip to hear what originally drove him to break into the world of hip-hop.
Nas shared his story with The FADER x Sprite. “Growing up in Queensbridge, hip-hop was the most amazing thing I’d ever heard,” says Nas in the Obey Your Thirst documentary, made by The FADER and Sprite. “There was nothing more important to me than having a voice. I wanted to make a big impact on this art form. I wanted to open up a doorway for another generation.”
