Last year Nas was honored by the prestigious Harvard University with the establishment of The Nasir Jones Fellowship. Professor of African and African American Studies and founder and director of the Hip-Hop Archive and Research Institute Marcyliena Morgan states “The main purpose of the fellowship,is to support people doing work that has to do with the ways hip-hop itself reaches out to youth through the world, and particularly how it brings together issues of social justice, art and politics. That relationship – and how difficult it can be – is an important aspect of what we’re looking at. Hip-hop has been a way of getting the word out in very difficult situations.” San Francisco Design Studio, Ammunition Group, recently journeyed to discover and explain the development and creation of The Nasir Jones Fellowship at Harvard University. The short documentary features Nas discussing the importance of Hip Hop to the youth and the significant value of bringing the art form to the prestigious university.
