Nas Narrates, Scores ESPN Doc on Liberian Amputee Soccer Team

     

    Though he’s been sidetracked by financial woes over the last several months, Nas has nevertheless been keeping busy on the creative front. The New York-born and bred hip-hop vet is not only prepping his new Distant Relatives collaboration with Damian Marley, but he’s taken the time to provide the voiceover and music for a new story that’s part of ESPN’s ongoing E:60 series. 

     

    The MC’s gravelly, yet soft-spoken delivery offsets the harsh reality of the documentary, which centers on two members of the Liberian amputee soccer team whose inspirational efforts helped “heal a nation” torn by nearly two decades of civil war. Nas, a son of the Queensbridge housing projects, says at the beginning of the teaser, “I realized my realities were like a walk in the park compared to what these kids go through in other countries.” The full E:60 story airs Tuesday, May 4 at 7pm EST on ESPN.
