Nas is getting ready to bring his story to the small screen!

His journey will be shown on BET through a television pilot titled Street Dreams.

According to Deadline:

Set against the backdrop of a turbulent New York City in the early ’90s, Street Dreams, named after Nas’ breakout 1996 hit song, was originally set at the now-defunct XBox Entertainment Studios as a half-hour comedy two years ago. Described as a show about music, family and the trials and tribulations of the rap game, it tracks the ascent of Nas, a young man from the Queensbridge projects who will go on to become a famous rapper, as he evolves from young man to crack dealer to rapper to adult.

The show will be an hour long and will be produced by Jonathan Levine who recently created the series Rush. It will also be executive produced by Nas. 

As you figured, the series gets its name from the 1996 hit single which can be seen below.
