Nas and Showtime have released a trailer for the new three-part docuseries, Supreme Team. Nas and Peter J. Scalettar directed the project, and the trailer gives a glimpse into the story of the Queens, New York crime cartel led by Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff and Gerald "Prince" Miller.
LL COOL J, Mayor Eric Adams and Nas appear in the trailer for the series, which debuts July 8 on Showtime and is described as "the epic saga of a New York empire." Journalist Joy Reid, singer Ashanti, producer Irv Gotti and others in the local community, politics, law enforcement, academia and popular culture offer statements and anecdotes throughout the series.
An official synopsis for the series reads: "While the Supreme Team reached its height in the 80's and 90's, the documentary series spans across six decades. Prince and Supreme begin by recalling the youthful decisions they made in the 1970's that would so greatly impact each of them later in life. What followed was a tightrope walk as these two men navigated choices that could land them as leaders of their industry, or behind bars for life - all the while getting sucked into the chaos of their community which has an impact that is still felt to this day."
The series will premiere at the the Tribeca Film Festival this Sunday June 19 and will be available for streaming on Showtime July 8. It premieres on the network on Sunday July 10 at 10 p.m. E.T.
