Nas Helps Launch Hip-Hop Fellowship at Harvard

Nas visited with representatives from the Hip-Hop Archives and the W.E.B Du Bois Institute at Harvard University yesterday to help introduce the new Fellowship that bears his name. The program, which was funded by an anonymous donor endowment, will help “fund artists and scholars who demonstrate exceptional creative ability in the arts in connection with Hip-Hop”. Also in attendance were professor Henry Louis Gates, who first approached Nas about the fellowship, and Hip-Hop Archive Founder Marcyliena Morgan.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, the Rapper explained:

“Hip-hop is important like computer science,” he continued. “The world is changing. If you want to understand the youth, listen to the music. This is what’s happening right underneath your nose.”

    Bow ties are a trademark of the F.O.I . But all apparel is determined by people who wear black slacks and white shirts everyday of the week. A style that would’ve been poppin in 1500′s Europe. The real smart people dont buy into fashion. Meanwhile you name yourself after a man who wears a bathrobe and collects millions for it and pays beautiful women to stay at his compound. To put it simple you’re just a hater.

    Times aren’t changing you fucking moron, they’re franchising an anti power art form, embeding it with elitism control tactics. There is a strategy behind this, and Nas is a fucking sellout for accepting to be part of this. And you’re a fucking idiot for thinking it’s a good thing.
