Nas has followed JAY-Z’s cannabis brand launch by embarking on his weed-related endeavor: a documentary. The legendary MC will executive produced and narrate BET’s SMOKE: Marijuana + Black America, which is scheduled to premiere on November 18.
“The world has finally begun opening up to the cannabis industry the way I feel it should have years ago,” Nas told Variety. “Even still, hate exists in this business for Black people, and that is something that sickens me and should be recognized for its blatant evil.”
He continued, “The people that have been locked up for marijuana should not only be freed but receive restitution for the damage done to them by outdated laws. It’s important to spread awareness on this, and that’s why everyone needs to make sure they tune in and watch the documentary SMOKE!”
