NAS At Harvard University

Hiphop At Harvard

When multi-platinum hiphop artist Nas was growing up in the housing projects in Queensbridge, New York, he probably wouldn’t have guessed Harvard would ask to create a hiphop fellowship in his name 30 years later. But it’s happening. So how do you design a home for hiphop at Harvard? We ventured to find out.

Growing up I would've loved an opportunity to mix hip hop and academics...the closest I got to something like this was being able to do presentations in a rap format.  It's nice to know that people in higher education can understand and appreciate the benefit of hip hop in adolescent lives.  It's even more dope how Harvard of all institutions has created a Hip Hop Fellowship and chosen NAS to honor it.  Wow.
