Rapper NAS is investing into future generations.

He is helping to fund technology scholarships for students from ethnic minorities.

He is now working with officials at a private New York technical school General Assembly to try and provide chances for African-American and Latinos.

He’s using his QueensBridge Venture Partners project.

This gives him a place among Microsoft and Google bosses, who are also trying to provide opportunities for military veterans and women, and help them cover the costs of education.
In 2013, NAS stepped into the business of magazine publishing.

As a businessman and investor, he invested a six figure sum into Mass Appeal Magazine, where he will serve as the publication’s associate publisher.

On the Mass Appeal deal, he was joined by creative firm Decon and White Owl Capital Partners, an early stage investment firm with business interests in technology, media and energy.

The same year, he also announced on Twitter.com that he was opening his own sneaker store, signaling his big entrance into the retail industry.

He inked a deal with the company Fila back in 2008, serving as one of its main representatives.

Nas has also struck a business deal with the annual Rock The Bells music festival and a deal with the online retail company 12Society.com.

In September 2013, he invested in a technology startup, a job search appmaker, called Proven.

He also has a partnership with Hennessy brand and has been working with their “Wild Rabbit” campaign.
