Ammunition’s new series, By Design, takes a compelling look at Harvard University’s Nasir Jones Fellowship. The fellowship’s namesake, Nas, explains his role and activism and punfully says that Hip-Hop needs a countering “slow-down period” to the “fast life” (a single Nas appeared on with Kool G Rap almost 20 years ago). Harvard professor Dr. Henry Louis Gates stresses the entrepreneurial lessons within Hip-Hop. Meanwhile, former Def Jux artist, and Perceptionists member Akrobatik, a Boston MC, applies for the fellowship, as the vignette shows his own Hip-Hop teachings.
