If you're a hip hop head, this is absolute gold. Back when there were no cameras or cell phones--when there was no behind-the-scenes in rap--N.O.R.E. was carrying a camera around with him everywhere, filming his every move.

Nore, now known as P.A.P.I., planned to make a behind-the-scenes documentary showcasing everyone coming up in the game at the time. By the documentary getting shelved, an unintentional time capsule was created. People like Big Pun, Nas, 50 Cent, Juelz Santana, and others appear back before they were superstars, and the footage takes on an eerie, surreal quality.

Check out the 8-minute long trailer for the documentary above. Hopefully the whole thing gets released sometime soon.
