Following the success of Nas’ Time Is Illmatic documentary, the legendary hip-hop artist is backing yet another culture-altering documentary titled Shake The Dust.

The Adam Sjoberg-directed documentary chronicles the influence hip-hop culture and the art of breakdancing has on poverty-stricken countries like Yemen, Cambodia, Uganda, and Colombia.

In the six-minute extended clip, a young Ugandan boy says:

“We know we can’t dance our way out of poverty, but with breakdancing you feel that you can do anything. If you ask me what’s happening with hip-hop, where hip-hop is going, hip-hop goes wherever we go.”
