Recently, Fashawn revealed Nasir’s interest in having him join his roster completely changed his career outlook.
“Before this whole Nas thing happened, I was really discouraged with rap. I was not excited about the future of hip-hop. I was doing other things. But, getting the call from Nas just lit the fire again. Really just got me ready to kill everything in my path.” (VLAD TV)
Nasty Nas announced the official signing last Wednesday (July 9) and called the rapper one of hip-hop’s most underrated emcees.

Last month, Nas talked about his admiration for speculated Mass Appeal signee Boldy James.
“All day, yes sir,” Nas said when asked if he was signing Boldy James. “He spit. He just spit straight raw straight outta the D. Everybody know what it is in the D, and my man right there, he’s flowing. It’s just easy. It’s just easy to see the talent right there and I just wanted to be associated with that. … I’ve been hearing what he’s been doing and found out he didn’t have a deal. When I found out he was still free, I was just trying to see if he was ready to get down with this thing and go all the way with Mass Appeal and I think it’s a perfect connection.” (Hot 107.5)
