Nasir Jones has a lot to be thankful for these days. After celebrating his 40th birthday like a king and performing on the new legendary Arsenio Hall’s late night show last week. The celebration continues, reports, “…This Thursday September 19th, Nas will join Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. of the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute and Professor Marcyliena Morgan of the Hip Hop Archive and Research Institute for a press conference covering Harvard University’s Nasir Jones Hip Hop Fellowship…”

According to the Hip Hop Archives website, Press Release:”…The Fellowship To Fund Scholars And Artists Who Demonstrate Exceptional Productive Scholarship And Exceptional Creative Ability In The Arts, In Connection With Hiphop.

(July 12, 2013 – New York, NY)  The two decade (plus) career of multi-platinum Def Jam Recordings artist Nas is at the heart of a joint announcement by the Hiphop Archive and the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute at Harvard University, to establish the Nasir Jones Hiphop Fellowship.  The Fellowship will provide selected scholars and artists with an opportunity to show that “education is real power,” as it builds upon the achievements of those who demonstrate exceptional capacity for productive scholarship and exceptional creative ability in the arts, in connection with Hiphop.

The mission of the Hiphop Archive is threefold: to seek projects from scholars and artists that build on the rich and complex hiphop 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 hiphop and the discourse through personal and academic projects.  Personal projects of fellows may include manuscript projects, performance pieces, album work, curriculum planning, primary archival research, and exhibition preparation, among others.
