It is becoming hard to talk bad about hip-hop when Nas is being celebrated by Harvard University with his own ‘Nasir Jones Hip-Hop Fellowship.’ This move is a game changer for the culture and entertainment.

The Hip-Hop archive in joint partnership with The W.E.B. Du Bios Institute at Harvard University has honored Nas with a fellowship.  The director of the W.E.B. Du Bios Institute, Dr. Henry Lewis Gates Jr., talked about working with Nas.

“Nas is a true visionary, and he consistently shows how boundaries can be pushed and expanded to further the cause of education and knowledge.”

Nas was able to respond to such a great honor in the education realm by telling MTV,

“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.”

Congrats to the homie Nas for being honor by Harvard University.  I think hip-hop continues to get a bad name with people while we overlook advancements like this one done by a legend.  I hope people will share this news just like they do when hip-hop entertainers have bad news. Let’s bring balance.

Do you think advancements like this help bring balance to the hip-hop culture?  Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.
