A MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE: NAS PLANS TO PURSUE HIS H.S. DIPLOMA

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne

According to Pittsburgh’s Post Gazette, hip-hop star Nasir “Nas” Jones plans to pursue his high school diploma.
[Nas told] high school students at the Boys & Girls Clubs of America's annual National Keystone Conference that his goal was to get his diploma and [he] encourage[d] others who never graduated to do the same...‘The reality of it is, you need to keep educating yourself, and I wish I had stayed in school,’ Nas said.
NBA player Bob Lanier and R&B star Ne-Yo, also spoke to the high school students during the four-day conference.

Despite Nas dropping out of school in the 8th grade, he has always been lauded by critics, fans and his peers for his lyricism. After almost 20 years in the game, Nas is still considered one of the illest wordsmiths to ever touch the mic.

Good job Nas! Now if you could only “kick knowledge” to the Judge and get your spousal/child support payments reduced or at least convince Kelis to come back…all would be right in your and The Chick Fix world!

  1. I am so proud of him that he is going back to get his high school diploma. He is setting a good example for fellow youth who dropped out of school. Hopefully, they follow his lead and go back to get theirs. Thanks for posting.
