Nas Executive Producing New B-Boy Documentary “Shake The Dust”

(AllHipHop News) Having already created Hip Hop classics like Illmatic, It Was Written, and last year’s Grammy nominated Life Is Good, Nas is now continuing his crossover into filmmaking. The Queensbridge legend is taking on the role of executive producer for the upcoming dance documentary Shake the Dust.

The film is directed by Adam Sjöberg (We All Might Make It) and will cover the social impact breaking dancing has across the globe. Nas will also provide original music for the film.

“What these kids are doing around the world reminds me why I fell in love with hip-hop and how important it is as a creative and constructive outlet,” said Nas in a statement. “After hearing Adam’s vision for this project and hearing the stories, I was incredibly excited to help bring the film to global audiences who need to hear this surprising message of empowerment.”
