Illmatic Memories

My first trip to Queensbridge was for Nas’ One Love video shoot directed by Fab 5 Freddy. I cast most of the talent (everyone that wasn’t a part of Nas’ crew).

While on set, which was the projects, a girl walked over to me and said Nas told her to come talk to me about working on videos. I was a little surprised because I hadn’t even formally met Nas that day and wondered how/why he told the girl to come see me. Maybe because I was one of the few women on set that day and the least likely to take advantage of a young ambitious girl trying to break into the game?? Who knows.

I worked with Nas a few times over the years. Never made it back to The Bridge tho. Glad to have been a part of the making of a hip hop classic. #illmatic
