With the massive success of New Edition’s miniseries, BET is ready to continue their rating streak. According to Deadline, BET has ordered an upcoming “music-infused period scripted project” based on the life of hip-hop icon, Nas. The series will be set in the early ’90s, as it chronicles the journey of Nas life as young man from the Queensbridge projects, to his life as a superstar rapper.

Nas who will serve as the executive producer will be joined by Rush creator Jonathan Levine, who is set to write the script and direct the pilot. Nas’ manager Anthony Saleh and filmmakers Jamie Patricof and Lynette Howell are also slated to executive produce the show.While it seems like everybody is doing a biopic these days, I’m glad to see these artists who have stories to tell are able to tell their stories and get it right for all of us to enjoy.
