After addressing the tragic deaths of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Eric Garner and the perception of Hip Hop’s connection to their stories, Q-Tip confirmed that New York legend Nas, Pro Era front man Joey Bada$$, and Indiana emcee Freddie Gibbs are now all officially members of the Universal Zulu Nation.
I’m gonna let y’all know about some of the new inductees and what our plan – and when I say our I’m speaking specifically about mine and 9th Wonder, [what] our chapter is trying to do for the Nation. To really put a stronghold out there, so that we can be active and not just be angry. Not just be emotional but have a real thing there for change, a real vehicle, a real structure.
So some of the inductees we had recently are Nas. He joined. Joey Bada$$ joined. Freddie Gibbs joined. Last week Lil Wayne joined… and today Big Boi from OutKast joined.
