Nas is not only one of the greatest rappers to ever walk the earth, but he’s always been an ambassador for hip-hop, and he’s once again proving why.
The legendary Queensbridge rapper, along with Steve Stoute, Andreessen Horowitz co-founder Ben Horowitz, and his wife, Felicia Horowitz, are coming together to pay homage and financial support to figures who contributed to the culture but didn’t get their just dues.
According to AfroTech, the first-ever Hip-Hop Grandmaster Awards is reportedly slated to recognize Rakim and Scarface. Of the event’s proceeds, 100 percent will go to the foundation’s programs “to support hip-hop greats and other creatives,” the Paid in Full Foundation’s website states.
The Hip-Hop Grandmaster Awards, which is sold-out, will take place November 17 in Las Vegas.
