Reclaiming Our Way promoting the well-being of African American children & families


Nas – Earlier this week on HuffPost Live

Interesting to see and listen to hip-hop artists as they mature.  Our remaining challenge is to flood the socialization process for our children with the kind of information and perspectives that significantly increase their social, political and cultural consciousness - beginning as early as possible.  In effect, we'd be decreasing the time lag between the immaturity we see during the early and adolescent years and the more reflective period that comes way later than we need.

Legendary hip-hop artist Nas joins HuffPost Live to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his debut album, "Illmatic." He reflects on his illustrious career, the state of hip-hop and what "Illmatic XX" means to him.
