Nas teamed up with Google Arts and Culture for a special tribute to celebrate Black History Month. The legendary MC penned an article for Google titled “We Continue To Rise” and starred in an accompanying video to pay homage to generations of Black music.
“I was raised to understand that every month was Black History Month,” Nas wrote. “That every day, my ancestors, contemporaries and everyday dreamers like myself can, shall, and continue to make history. Our music has been a relentless advocate for our story, which plays a crucial role in the American narrative: Red, white and blues, baby.”
