Nas Teams Up with Google and Microsoft for Tech-Based Scholarships

These are the stories we don't hear enough about. Many Hip Hop stars give back but for some reason it has to be a secret. Of course most rappers are not as socially aware as Nas is but they can aspire to be. Big kudos to Nas. I don't know if they makes up for "Oochie Wally" but it's a start. LOL. George Cook

[ SOURCE ] General Assembly, a private technical school in New York has created a new fund designed to increase minority participation in the tech world, and it’s receiving help from none other than Nas. The hip-hop artist has enlisted the help of Hirepurpose and tech giants Google and Microsoft to help fund the new initiative. Nas’ own Queensbridge Venture Partners will fund scholarships aimed at African-Americans and Latinos, while Google’s contributions will help fund women’s scholarships and Microsoft and Hirepurpose will fund scholarships for veterans.
