Nasir “NaS” Jones just won an Emmy for this ESPN documentary we’ve been screaming about. Part of their E:60 series the doc, entitled “Survival 1″ follows two young amputees, survivors of the Liberian civil war, who go on to form a soccer team–and become champions. “After all these years of making music, I am honored to have this be the first award I have ever won of this magnitude,” said Nas in his acceptance speech. “An Emmy before a Grammy? Crazy shit.” Nas produced, directed and scored the music for the film.
