Nas Co-Directs Documentary on Hip-Hop Around the Globe

Nas Documentary, Uganda, Yeme, Colombia, Cambodia
I love a good documentary. I love cultural authenticity and the following film looks like it fits the bill to be added to my favorites. Nas teamed up with director Adam Sjoberg to produce Shake the Dust, a documentary about breakers and rappers in Uganda, Colombia, Cambodia and Yemen.

“What these kids are doing around the world reminds me why I fell in love with hip-hop and how important it is as a creative and constructive outlet,” Nas said in a statement (Via Okay Africa). “After hearing Adam’s vision for this project and hearing the stories, I was incredibly excited to help bring the film to global audiences who need to hear this surprising message of empowerment.”

Check it out:

Travel, international ideas, music and culture–sounds good to me.

There were no further details about when we can expect to see on Netflix soon.
