In celebration of IllmaticXX, Nas along with Mass Appeal held "The Represent Illmatic Video Contest" to give one up-and-coming filmmaker the opportunity to collaborate with Nas and Mass Appeal's Jason Golwatch to create the first ever music video for the classic track. The winner, Brian Katz, was personally selected by Nas and Goldwatch and invited to work at the YouTube Creator’s Space in Los Angeles, CA. Katz, a native of Los Angeles and long time Nas fan, discusses the inspiration and influences behind the video's direction and the significance of being apart of such an iconic album. The video will make it's world premiere tomorrow via Mass Appeal. Check out Complex's exclusive behind the scenes footage of the making of the video.
