Nas Gets Inspirational, Drops Dope Gems: “Let’s Get It Right: Mind. Body & Soul”

New York rap veteran Nas showed off his introspective side this holiday weekend with a few handfuls of inspirational messages posted across his social media networks.

Nasir Jones relied on his Twitter page to let loose on some random thoughts.

Check out this new Nas song right here…

Nasir Jones’ J Dilla-produced new “The Season” single officially premiered online last month.

Nas is back. After previewing the song at the Run the Jewels 2 release event in Brooklyn last night, the hip-hop king debuts the studio version of his new single “The Season.” Over J Dilla’s “Gobstopper” beat, he pays homage to the late producer and reflects on not being able to enjoy the fruits of his labor. “Dilla lives on / It’s like he wrote it with me / The soulful sample compliments my rhymes so well,” he raps.

Over the spring, Nas launched his own record label.

The venerated rapper, 40, is launching Mass Appeal Records, an independent record label, which, in addition to shepherding a new generation of hip-hop hopefuls, will also provide an outlet for new Nas music when his contract with Def Jam expires later this year. Mass Appeal Records is co-founded by Peter Bittenbender, 36, and will succeed Decon Records. (Billboard)

Along with Lost Tapes 2, multiple hip-hop releases are expected to come out under the Mass Appeal imprint.

First among Mass Appeal Records releases, arriving late this summer, will be an annual compilation album featuring friends of the brand like Future, Pusha T, Mac Miller, A$AP Mob and Nas himself performing a cover of the 1994 Gang Starr single that gave the company its name. Also on deck is “Lost Tapes 2,” a collection of unreleased Nas music, and a posthumous album from Pimp C that will pair the Houston icon and UGK member with modern production titans like Mike Will Made It and DJ Mustard.

    I respect Nas trying to build. If he wants to know what we need he can familiarize himself with Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X, WEB DuBois, and James Baldwin amongst others.
