Nas Honored With Harvard Hip-Hop Fellowship
According to Rolling Stone, Harvard University's Hip-Hop Archives and W.E.B. Du Bois Institute have created the Nasir Jones Hip-Hop Fellowship, which will "fund scholars and artists who show productive scholarship and creative potential in the arts in connection with hip-hop."
"I am immensely over-the-top excited about the Nasir Jones Hip-Hop Fellowship at Harvard. From Queens, NY to true cultural academia," Nas said in response to the fellowship.
"My hopes are that greed for knowledge, art, self-determination and expression go a long way. It is a true honor to have my name attached to so much hard work, alongside great names like Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and W.E.B. 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." more on this story
