Nasir Jones and The Guardian  have collaborated on a 6-minute short documentary that documents hip-hop’s influence on the lives of people oppressed by their living conditions all around the world.

Nas takes us through some unexpected places to highlight how important global artistic culture is to youth; exploring Yemen, Cambodia, Columbia, and Uganda to find young b-boys and b-girls finding an outlet through hip-hop. Each country has a different interviewee that discusses hip-hop’s unique effect on themselves and their poverty/war torn communities. For a fairly short clip, it really shows a lot about how universal hip-hop is. Watch it above.
