Nas Celebrates Hip Hop’s Birthday
Nas really is for the culture. The rap heavyweight recently jumped at the chance to recognize hip-hop’s impact on not only him but the world in “Hip-Hop 50.” During an interview, Nas opened up about the special meaning his Showtime project had for him.
There are so many more stories. I’m opening up with this, but ‘Hip Hop 50’ is a multi-tier initiative, created by Mass Appeal [in partnership with CBS Viacom], and we built this platform to ensure the anniversary of hip-hop is celebrated in a real iconic way, and that everybody should be involved with this. This is something that’s coming up that we don’t want to just pass by like it’s small. This is the biggest birthday in the world. You’re going to see the stories from every element of hip-hop, whether it’s the street stories, whether it’s the MCing. Whatever it is, we want to celebrate and push this birthday party to the max.” (Variety)
