Obviously, this is an old picture. Sorry Mr. Jones.

As Nas celebrates the 20th Anniversary of his classic debut Illmatic, XBOX Entertainment Studios is reportedly working on a half-hour series loosely based on the Queensbridge emcee’s life in the 90’s.

Titled Street Dreams, the project, from Jamie Patricof and Lynette Howell’s Electric City Entertainment (The Place Beyond The Pines), is set in the 1990’s in Long Island’s Queensbridge housing complex, where Nas grew up, and takes a look at music, family and the trials and tribulations of the rap game.

Written and directed by Jonathan Levine, who took home the Audience Award at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival for The Wackness,
