Congratulations to the illest, Nasir Jones (Nas), for being the face of the Harvard Hip-Hop Fellowship. This fellowship will offers funds to scholars and artists “who demonstrate exceptional productive scholarship and exceptional creative ability in the arts in connection with Hip-Hop.”
“My hopes are that greed for knowledge, art, self-determination and expression go a long way. It is a true honour to have my name attached to so much hard work, alongside great names like Henry Louis Gates, Jr and WEB Du Bois and to such a prestigious and historical institution, and all in the name of the music I grew to be a part of.” – Nas.
How dope is it to have one of the greats in collaboration with an ivy league institute of education, promoting the importance of Hip-Hop in today’s culture and society. The truth is to have any idea what’s going on with this generation, you’ve got to have a grasp on what’s going on with the music. So proud of Nas & his accomplishments. Much success!
