NYYS featured on SUGAR - a Youtube Premium show inspired by Maroon 5

Rapper A$AP Ferg surprises Majid, a deserving NYC public school teacher and Juilliard-trained violinist. Both from the same part of Harlem, Ferg and Majid share similar childhoods and a love of using music as a tool to reach and motivate people – A$AP, to reach his fans, and Majid, to reach his students. After dropping underground to do a pop-up performance of his song “Plain Jane” at a New York subway station, A$AP heads to a school assembly for a surprise performance of “New Level” as a personal thank you to Majid for all he does for his students.
