Rapper Nas, with his lyricism and substance, has impressed the illustrious Harvard University!

Tuesday July 16th, the Ivy League school announced that the 39-year-old rapper is being honored with the Nasir Jones Hip-Hop Fellowship at its W.E.B. Du Bois Institute. The Honor is a joint venture with Harvard’s Hip-Hop Archive.

The fellowship will assist students who excel in the arts “in connection with hip-hop.” The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Nas is one of hip-hop’s most celebrated lyricists, best known for his reflective rhymes and deep storytelling. His 11th album, “Life Is Good,” was released last year. It earned four Grammy nominations. His hits include “If I Ruled the World (Imagine That),” “Street Dreams” and “I Can.”

The Hip-Hop Archive was established at Harvard in 2002. It supports growing research in hip-hop. The step the university has to show the public its seriousness in terms of hip-hop education is excellent. Congrats Nas!
