“What these kids are doing around the world reminds me why I fell in love with hip-hop and how important it is as a creative and constructive outlet,” Nas said in a statement. “After hearing Adam’s vision for this project and hearing the stories, I was incredibly excited to help bring the film to global audiences who need to hear this surprising message of empowerment.”
Producer David Jacobson, who recently co-produced Lee Daniels’ The Butler, is spearheading Shake the Dust along with Sjoberg’s Loose Luggage Media and in association with Dave Stewart’s Weapons of Mass Entertainment and Wild Hair Media.
