Fashawn wasn’t the only special guest during Nas’ Mass Appeal performance in Austin during SXSW last week. Another up and comer and Mr. Jones made sure to shed light on? Detroit’s own Boldy James. Still riding high off his 2dope project with Alchemist, the Detroit emcee not only opened for Nas, but even came out during his set to let off “I Sold Dope All My Life.”
Check out a recap of Boldy’s time in Austin above and read up on his thoughts about Nas’ co-sign. As told to XXL:
How do you feel about getting a co-sign from Nas?
Whatchu mean how I feel? It’s amazing. How would you feel? I grew up on God’s Son, you feel me? I grew up on Nas, he’s one of my favorite lyricists, and for him to tell me that what I’m doing is, you know, in the target, hitting the bull’s eye possibly one day, that’s just a blessing, man. And I’m on sight. I’m on target. For him to let me know that, it feels great. It feels worth it.
