Nas Talks About Hip Hop Fellowship & Why He’s Fighting For The Genre!

Back in July, we got word that Hip-Hop Archive and the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute at Harvard University was honoring Nasir Jones, by building a fellowship in his name. The emcee gives us reason to why he’s down for the cause, one that he would not have been down for in his twenties. “In the beginning, I was a fighter. I’m always going to be a fighter, but I fight differently, for different reasons, today,” said Nas. “Hip Hop is important like computer science. The world is changing. If you want to understand the youth, listen to the music. This is what’s happening right underneath your nose,” he continued. Kurtis Blow, Rakim and many other legends’ words influenced his connection between hip-hop and education. He’s more for a fellowship such as this one nowadays due to these acts. This is what I like to see! You go Nas! Hit the jump for more.

What’s Going On With Our Money? Scientists Laid Off Due To Budget Cuts

It took time, but forced federal budget cuts are costing hundreds of science and medical research jobs. Some lose their job next month at Arkansas State University all cause of forced spending cuts. 30 jobs have been lost because of defense funding cuts for their work detecting bombs. On Friday, they were given plaques for their service. But are the plaques enough? These are just a FEW of the lay-offs underway all thanks to $85 billion in forced spending cuts, called sequester. And as more research grants don’t get renewed, the layoffs will get worse, experts say. It’s just sad because we need treatments for cancer, HIV, and so many more diseases.. and now we’re getting rid of people that can help? Unfortunate.
