Nas and The Guardian have put together a six-minute documentary about Hip Hop’s influence across the world.

The doc, titled “The Real Hip Hop,” explores several slums, shanty towns and ghettos in Uganda, Cambodia and Yemen, where there is a passion for Hip Hop.

A handful of natives speak about the music genre’s impact in their country in the doc.

“We know that we can’t dance our way out of poverty,” a young boy says. “But with break-dancing we feel like we can do anything.”

Nas does not appear in the film.
