He may not have a Grammy under his belt, but at least he can be thankful for his conscious think-tank of a mind.

 

Nasty Nas Recently  won a National Sports Emmy for his ESPN documentary, “Survival 1.” The film documents the real struggle after-math of the Liberian civil war — which has been going for over two decades and finally ended in ’03 — as it follows two amputee victims, Richard and Joseph, who  forms a Liberian Amputee Soccer Team and score ultimate victory, becoming champions.

 

The Queensbridge rapper produced, directed and scored the music for the film. “After all these years of making music, I am honored to have this be the first award I ever won of this magnitude,” he told NY Post of the win. “An Emmy before a Grammy. Crazy [bleep]!”

 

Congrats Nas!
