Nas teamed up with documentarian Adam Sjoberg and producer David Jacobson for Shake The Dust, a film that shows how breakdancing is being used around the world for social change.
“What these kids are doing around the world reminds me why I fell in love with Hip Hop and how important it is as a creative and constructive outlet,” Nas said in a statement.
In the statement, Nas also addressed his reasons for joining the film as an executive producer.
“After hearing Adam’s vision for this project and hearing the stories, I was incredibly excited to help bring the film to global audiences who need to hear this surprising message of empowerment,” Nas said.
Nas was a co-producer on Tyson, the 2008 documentary about boxer Mike Tyson.
Nas has also acted in films, notably as Sincere in 1998’s Belly.
