How long have we been waiting for The Lost Tapes 2 now? Over ten years? Yeah.. it’s been that long. But thanks to Nas’ recent launch of Mass Appeal Records, we’re finally being gifted with the official follow-up to one of Nas’ most loved pieces of work!
That’s not all. According to Billboard, the label-which features signees Boldy James, Bishop Nehru and Fashawn-will release a compilation with friends of the brand like Pusha T, Mac Miller, A$AP Mob, Future and Nas himself (who will offer a cover of Gang Starr’s 1994 classic that gave the company its name); as well as a posthumous Pimp C album that boasts modern production from the likes of Mike WiLL Made It and DJ Mustard.
“I’m excited to be a part of creating and supporting future careers and legacy artists, promoting love and finding new genius to help the world,” Nas said in an email. “I’m going to be as involved as I need to be, but I also want to be respectful of the art and give artists the space they need to grow and become themselves.”
