BET has decided to make yet another music biopic, this time it will be based on Rapper Nas’.

Via Deadline:

Set against the backdrop of a turbulent New York City in the early ’90s, Street Dreams, named after Nas’ breakout 1996 hit song, was originally set at the now-defunct XBox Entertainment Studios as a half-hour comedy two years ago. Described as a show about music, family and the trials and tribulations of the rap game, it tracks the ascent of Nas, a young man from the Queensbridge projects who will go on to become a famous rapper, as he evolves from young man to crack dealer to rapper to adult.

And also, Nas’ has been set to executive produce the project, so you know it’s legit.
