Twenty years after its release, Nas’ Illmatic classic “Represent” gets an official video.

The Queens veteran and Mass Appeal held a contest inviting fans to create the visuals. The winner, Brian Katz, was chosen to direct alongside Mass Appeal’s own Jason Goldwatch.

The black-and-white clip was inspired by the soundtrack to the 1924 silent film, The Thief of Bagdad, which DJ Premier sampled on the song.

“As someone who has had Illmatic in heavy rotation for the past 20 years, the opportunity to represent as a true fan in sharing my vision with Nas and have Jason Goldwatch help bring that vision to reality is proof positive that indeed ‘The World Is Yours,'” said Katz.

Illmatic XX, a special 20th anniversary edition of Nas’ seminal debut, is available now featuring rare remixes, unreleased demos, and freestyles.
