In case you’re one of those “types” that didn’t listen in school, believes in flat Earths, agrees with anything FOX New troll Tomi Lahren says and/or feel that Blue Lives Matter (and if that’s the case, seriously leave this website because we don’t need your hits in life. Ever), we’re a week into Black History Month. Along with the multiple reasons to celebrate, Nas is doing his part to contribute.

The legend has partnered with Google Arts & Culture for a special open letter, paying homage to a multitude of Black musicians and creatives that have inspired, empowered and changed the way an entire society thinks, feels and loves. “I was raised to understand that every month was Black History Month. That every day, my ancestors, contemporaries and everyday dreamers like myself can, shall, and continue to make history,” he said in the letter. “Our music has been a relentless advocate for our story, which plays a crucial role in the American narrative: Red, white and blues, baby.”
