Nas Honored With Hip Hop Fellowship At Harvard

Nas is honored with "The Nasir Jones Hip-Hop Fellowship," which is established to fund scholars and artists who demonstrate exceptional scholarship and creative ability in the arts.

Nas is one of the most respected rappers in the history of the genre. Now the Queens, New York rapper born Nasir Jones is being honored by Harvard University with "The Nasir Jones Hip-Hop Fellowship," which is being established by the Hip-Hop Archive and The W.E.B. Du Bois Institute at the revered Massachusetts school of higher learning. The fellowship is designed to fund scholars and artists who demonstrate exceptional, productive scholarship and creative ability in the arts, as they relate to Hip Hop.

“In my rollercoaster of a life, I've endured good and bad for sure, and I've truly been blessed to have achieved so much through art in my short life thus far," Nas said in a statement provided by the Island Def Jam Music Group, which releases Nas' music. "But I am immensely over-the-top excited about the Nasir Jones Hip-Hop Fellowship at Harvard. From Queens, New York to true cultural academia. My hopes are that greed for knowledge, art, self-determination and expression go a long way. 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.” 

Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., the Alphonse Fletcher University Professor and Director of the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research says that Nas' affiliation will benefit the institution. “Nas is a true visionary, and he consistently shows how boundaries can be pushed and expanded to further the cause of education and knowledge," Gates, Jr. says. "The work of the Du Bois Institute is enriched by the addition of the Nasir Jones Hip-Hop Fellowship.”

Nas' most recent album, Life Is Good, was released in 2012. He put out his first album, Illmatic, in 1994. The project is one of the most acclaimed rap releases of all time thanks to Nas' poetic, story-driven rhymes and production from DJ Premier, Pete Rock and others.

The Hip-Hop Archive was established at Harvard University in 2002 to support and establish the emerging research and scholarship devoted to the knowledge, art, culture, materials, organizations, movements and institutions developed by those who support and follow Hip Hop. The Hip-Hop Archive and Research Institute organizes and develops collections, initiates and participates in research activities, sponsors events and acquires material culture associated with Hip Hop in the U.S. and throughout the world.

Harvard University's Hip-Hop Archive has three objectives, according to the press release from the Island Def Jam Music Group. "To seek projects from scholars and artists that build on the rich and complex hip-hop tradition; to respect that tradition through historically grounded and contextualized critical insights; and most importantly, to represent one’s creative and/or intellectually rigorous contribution to hip-hop and the discourse through personal and academic projects," the release says. "Personal projects of fellows may include manuscript projects, performance pieces, album work, curriculum planning, primary archival research, and exhibition preparation, among others."  

“Having welcomed various artists and scholars, the Hip-Hop Archive and Research Institute is uncompromising in our commitment to build and support intellectually challenging and innovative scholarship that reflects the rigor and achievement of Hip Hop performance,” says Marcyliena Morgan, Professor of African and African American Studies at Harvard University and founder and director of the Hip-Hop Archive and Research Institute. “With the introduction of the Nasir Jones Hip-Hop Fellowship, we will continue to be the leading resource for those interested in knowing, developing, building, maintaining, and representing Hip Hop.” 

Named after William Edward Burghardt Du Bois who, in 1895, was the first African American to receive a Ph.D. from Harvard University, the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research is the nation’s oldest research center dedicated to the study of the history and culture of Africans and African Americans. The Institute was established in 1975 to sponsor fellowships that would facilitate the writing of doctoral dissertations in areas related to Afro-American Studies. The Institute awards up to 20 fellowships annually to scholars at various stages of their careers in the fields of African and African American Studies.

    idk if you guys just dont like The Game for some reason.but hes a fucking beast if you think about it -1 of only 3 Dr. Dre Proteges (Em Snoop Game) * Over 10X platinum - 5(thats every one) Number 1 albums -Has cosigns from everyone that matters (except Jay Z and the Little faggot Lil B) Like Dre, Snoop, Cube, Nas, Wu tang, Kanye, Busta, Weezy, Big Boi, Diddy..the list goes on -Singlehandedly destroyed G-Unit (they were the YMCMB of that time) and immediately dropped a 4x platinum album w/o any Dre or G-Unit help -has 2 clothing brands, his own shoe -Hes Grammy nominated -He has never dropped a weak ALBUM now before everyone goes calling me a stan or some bs. im stating facts. look them up. Whose opinion matters more? Raps heavyweights and music reviewers or a bunch of haters on the internet?

    Hopsin vs Nas who is the GOAT? Hopsin takes the win IMO because he is real talking about not doing drugs, tatoos and loving some Jesus! He also disses every fake rappers like its his job! Unlike Nas who only dissed Jay-Z, Prodigy and Nature and went to hell for snufffin Jesus" Hopsin is 27 and also skateboards and wears white contacts and "no one tells him what to do but him like he says in his songs Nas thinks he is cool by just focusing on the lyrics but he aint all that

  • GUCCI

    Big Guwop is the realest rapper and heres why. 1) all other rappers rap about being gangster shooting and killing but they havent done it. 2) Eminem raps about killing he hasnt. 3)Jay z raps in open letter about sending shots he hasnt. 4)Nas raps about how he is a queens thug but he wasn't. 5)Most of the rappers rap about stuff they havent done yet you all support them and say its real rap. 6)When rick ross does it you all claim he is fake and say its fake rap. This shows that hiphop fans are hypocritical and all these real hiphop fan wanna be's are just some unjustified haters whose opinions are just as irrelevent as the swag fag rapper fans. BIG GUWOP KILLED A MAN HE WAS A DRUG DEALER BEFORE RAPPER HE HAS STREET CREDENTIALS HE IS THE ONLY RAPPER THAT RAPS ABOUT FACTS THERE FORE BIG GUWOP IS THE REALEST RAPPER IN THE RAP GAME AND THATS A FACT!

"But I am immensely over-the-top excited about the Nasir Jones Hip-Hop Fellowship at Harvard. From Queens, New York to true cultural academia. My hopes are that greed for knowledge, art, self-determination and expression go a long way. 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.

Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., the Alphonse Fletcher University Professor and Director of the W. E. B.

It has been nearly four years since 50 Cent released a label-backed album. In that time, the Queens, New York superstar and G-Unit Records head was believed to be without a label to begin with. After moving his own label to EMI Distribution in 2010, the multi-platinum star was believed to be free of Shady/Interscope Records, where he released four solo albums dating back to 2003. Speaking about the album believed to be titled Street King Immortal, 50 Cent recently explained his delays to MTV Rap Fix. "I don't really need the money off of the record. I want the record to be right." Having been backed by Interscope Records for over a decade, 50 Cent confirmed his ongoing relationship with Jimmy Iovine's label, but noted heavy personnel turnover. "[Interscope Records has had] a lot of staff changes, a lot of different people moving in and moving out," said the rapper. Recently, Interscope became the latest home to Joie Manda, who left his post as Def Jam Records' President to become 'Scope's President of Urban Music. Comparing himself to a basketball player, 50 elaborated that he feels the proper supporting team is not in place. "I've been on a team where I take the ball out and throw myself the alley-oop, and I take the ball out and shoot the three-pointer myself, and I take the ball out and I dunk the ball." Interscope Records' current roster includes Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q (both of whom are signed to TDE/Aftermath Entertainment), and two onetime nemeses of 50 in French Montana and Game. The latter is signed to Geffen Records, an Interscope subsidiary. 2 Chainz is on the road as part of Lil Wayne's "America's Most Wanted" tour with T.I. The Playaz Circle rapper says the tour is remarkable, on many levels. "It's the most bad-ass tour this year," 2 Chainz says in Lil Wayne's Tour Passport, Episode 6 video. "It's featuring some real, Black fuckin' Rock stars...Every night, expect pure excitement. Expect crowd participation. Expect a party on stage." 2 Chainz was equally braggadocious when describing his own performance on the tour. "I'm the illest nigga doin' that shit," he says. "Fuck that shit. Let me just tell you that." As for his forthcoming album, 2 Chainz refers to the release as Me Time in the video, though a Universal Music group spokesman told HipHopDX the album title remains B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time, as has been previously reported. "I've got an album coming out September 10," 2 Chainz says. "I don't give a fuck who dropped this year. It's about me. The name of the album Me Time, you feel me." The "America's Most Wanted" is slated to hit the First Niagara Pavilion in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania tomorrow (July 16) and conclude August 31 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, according to ticketmaster.com. The tour video concludes with a flyer for Lil Wayne's European tour in October, which is slated to feature Mac Miller.

    Great honor for a legend. Also, I see the trolls are out in effect. This is why kids with no knowledge of hip-hop should be banned from this site.

      Keep making up lies to make your miserable life better, bitch. Swag is not class. Get a real life.

    • dentaldamboy

      My teacher in high school taught me that swag is class. I work as an accountant for ymcmb and i fuck female college virgins. YOU LOSE!!

      Swag is not class, it's the opposite of that. I'm not mad and I have a job, so I'm not broke. You lose.

      Swag is class. The opposite of that is a hater such as your mad broke ass.

      Wrong. Swag is made up by people who don't respect others. The opposite of swag is class, AKA people who respect others and will make it farther in life than the swagfags. "Don't be mad just because we at ymcmb make far more money than you." The excuse used by hardcore stans like yourself when you have no valid argument and are just making up bullshit. WRONG AGAIN!!

    • dentaldamboy

      Swag is made by those who respect everyone who they are. The opposite of swag is hater which describes you. Don't be mad just because we at ymcmb make far more money than you.

    • Anonymous

      Nope. Swag is made b people who are the opposite of that. I have a job, so I'm not broke.

    • dentaldamboy

      Swag is made by those who accept life and are more accepting of others unlike your hating ass who is broke.

      Dentalbitch, stop making up lies because what you said is not true.

    • Bobyahed2dis

      It's true, I saw Wayne and Drake take turns taking Kate Upton's virginity, after they finished they passed her on to me, wayne is a thoughtful nigga and Gangster of the year!!

      More lies you made up. Swag is artificial bulkshit made by teenage douchebags who dropped out of high school who spends their entire day getting high and drunk, partying every day like they have nothing else to do, and only attracting easily impressed skanks who have no aspirations in life. Everything you say are lies you made up.

    • dentaldamboy

      It's true. Nas, after his divorce, could not get any more women so had to turn to fucking men like Jay Z. Wayne and Drake have plenty of 19 year old virgins.

    • Bobyahed2dis

      Swag is made up by men in their 20's that are good at sports and fuck alot of quality bitches, Nas bitch on the other hand cheated on him with Gay-Z and Kelis was spotted by Dental Fucking Wayne and Drake

    • Anonymous

      Swag is made up bullshit by kids who'll never get far in life and the only women they get are skanks who have no respect for themselves and have 4 babies by 4 different men. Nas don't need that bullshit and gets more women than your trolling ass.

    • Bobyahed2dis

      Having swag is everything in life, it gets you the bitches and much further in life. Nas has none and gets no bitches

      Nothing y'all say is true. Nas is dope and Ace Hood sucks.

    • dentaldamboy

      We speak the truth. Nas is wack and Allmusic begs to differ on your view of ace hood.

      I hate swagfags. Bobyahead, you and dentalbitch are the trolls. Nas is dope and Ace Hood is wack. Die.

    • Bobyahed2dis

      The only troll he is you and you should be banned from this site, nas is wack and ace hood is one of the best in the game! Yolo!

  • fuck hip hop dx

    "The NaRIS Jones Hip Hop Fellowship"???

  • dentaldamboy

    Why the fuck is nas so popular? He's fucking wack and has a shitty flow. I listened to Ace Hood's lastest album (he sent it to me since Im an accountant for ymcmb) and is one of the best albums I have listened to. This will sell 550k opening week.

      Ace Hood ain't running shit. The album is wack, period.

      Keep making up lies. You only described yourself. YMCMB\MMG ain't running shit.

    • dentaldamboy

      Allmusic gave Trials and Tribulations a 4/5. I've described you. YMCMB and MMG running this game.

    • Anonymous

      The irony. Everything you say is a lie. You just described yourself.

    • dentaldamboy

      Everything you both said is a lie. You have a miserable life, living in your mama's basement. You have a gay ass boyfriend. Anyway Ace Hood is getting praised, Drake will stay t ymcmb, Ace Hood will go gold 1st week and fathers and sons kissing is natural and the circle of life.

      @demtaldambitch Again, everything you just said is a big, fucking lie.

      Keep making up bullshit. I'm not a hater, I'm a realist. I have a good life; a well-paying job, my own house in the suburbs, and a beautiful girlfriend who lives with me; something you trolls don't have. Fuck YOLO.

    • dentadamboy

      Nas is considered great because nas pays the editors to classify his albums as legendary. Ace Hood will be considered great and allmusic praised it more than Gay Z's latest album. Ace hood will go gold, drake will stay at ymcmb, and fathers and sons kiss all the time and are still straight.

    • Bobyahed2dis

      The experts at allmusic think's Ace Hood's flow is dope, your just a hater that didn't make it in life! Yolo!

    • Anonymous

      Nas is considered a great because he is a great. Ace Hood does not have his own style. Many rappers talk about a lot, nothing new. Ace Hoid has a wack flow and will not go gold. Stop lying.

    • dentaldamboy

      Nas will only be in greatest all of time lists because delusional stans and reporters put him there. Ace Hood does have a style. He talks about god a lot, not something mainstream rappers rap about. He has a great flow and will go gold in 1st week. BTW, allmusic gave it a 4/5.

    • Anonymous

      Good jokes, kid. Nas will forever be one of the greatest of all time. Ace Hood sucks; he's a boring rapper with no individual style and personality, uses the same wack ass flow, and raps about the same typical generic mainstream rap topics. He will not sell 500k ever; he'll do 50k.

    • dentaldamboy

      I didn't lie. Daft Punk's latest album was their first to hit gold. Nas sucks and is one of the worst rappers out there. Allmusic gave Trials and Tribulations a 4/5 (a higher rating that Gay Z's Magna Carter 3/5.) Positive word of mouth will lead this going gold 1st week.

    • Bobyahed2dis

      Nas is an overrated rapper who's been washed up since the 90's, Ace Hood on the other hand has one of the all time greatest flows and wordplay and will sell 500k plus!!

    • Anonymous

      A bunch of lies you made up. Nas is one of the best rappers of all time. Ace Hood is a wack rapper. Nobody said his album was good at all and it'll sell 50k 1st week since nobody cares about Ace Hood.

    • dentaldamboy

      Neither did Daft Punk's albums up to now yet all of a sudden, they went gold.

    • dentaldamboy

      You got that backward, you're wrong about everything. Nas is wack and the only ill in his flow is making my ears sick from listening to him. Ace Hood is a great rapper, both XXL Magazine and Allmusic called his album his best work ever (Allmusic named it editor's choice) and his album will sell 50k copies withing the first hour alone.

    • Anonymous

      None of Ace Hood's albums even went gold, he won't sell that much.

    • Anonymous

      You're wrong about everything. Nas is dope and he has an ill flow, which is why he's a legend and is one of the most respected rappers in the game. Ace Hood and his album sucks. His album will notbsell that much. It'll do 50k 1st week at the most.

    So says the troll with a dick in his mouth
