Rapper Nas Presented with Prestigious W.E.B. DuBois Medal at Harvard University
Rapper Nas just added another accolade to his long list of accomplishments. The Queens native was awarded the W.E.B. DuBois Medal at Harvard University on Wednesday night! Check it out below….
The award, named after the NAACP founder, was established in 2000 and recognizes individuals in the United States and across the globe for their contributions to African-American culture and the life of the mind.
The Queensbridge native, whose real name is Nasir Jones, was honored for his numerous contributions to culture, human rights and the arts surrounding the African-American community.
Nas established a relationship with the ivy league college two years ago, when Harvard created the Nasir Jones Fellowship — a program set to uncover “projects from scholars and artists that build on the rich and complex hip-hop tradition.”
To celebrate this award, the Grammy Award nominated rapper celebrated with fellow recipient, former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, and Harvard professors Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Lawrence D. Bobo.
Past honorees of the award include Oprah Winfrey, Quincy Jones, Shonda Rhimes and Maya Angelou. – via dailynews
Nas is one of the greatest Hip Hop emcees to ever touch a mic and he always made sure to blend lyrics of substance in with his style so congratulations to him for this one! He definitely deserves it!
