Nas Celebrates Mass Appeal Records 5-Year Anniversary W/ Uncle Murda, Jungle + More

Nas

New York rap veteran Nas isn’t done celebrating his record label’s five-year run. The hip-hop pioneer has shared a moment from Mass Appeal Records’ celebration night.

Nasir Jones went to Instagram Friday with a pic of himself alongside fellow musicians including G-Unit’s Uncle Murda.

In May 2014, Nas partnered up with music exec Peter Bittenbender to launch Mass Appeal.

Signing a number of new artists, Nas is also intending to use the label as a base when his contract with Def Jam expires later this year. In an email confirming the project, Nas wrote: “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. 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.” The Mass Appeal label will sit alongside the publication of the same name, which was launched last year after Nas and Bittenbender utilised $1.2 million in start up funds. (Clash Music)

Last year, the label secured a global distribution deal with Universal Music Group.

The lucrative deal enables Mass Appeal to promote projects–in more than 60 territories–from artists such as Nas, J Dilla, Run the Jewels, and DJ Shadow. “I’ve been blessed to work with two of the best brands in music, Nas said via press release. “Columbia Records was how I got my start and Def Jam was where I continued that journey. In my next chapter, I am proud to say that I am signing myself to myself. I look forward to releasing many projects in the very near future with Mass Appeal’s new global partnership with UMG.” (VIBE)

Over the past few years, Mass Appeal has kept busy with handfuls of major partnerships.

Mass Appeal started as a magazine in the 1990s, and expanded around 2013 to become a media company, creative agency, and record label under the stewardship of rapper Nas and CEO Peter Bittenbender. Since pivoting into brand work, Mass Appeal has created campaigns and content for the likes of Google, HBO, Soundcloud, and Under Armour–and will now be tasked with shaping the image of the definitive museum for hip-hop.

Nas Still Supports De La Soul’s Record Label Ban: “Boycott Tommy Boy”

Nas

New York rapper Nas still isn’t here for Tommy Boy. The hip-hop veteran has called out the legendary record label.

Nasty Nas went to Instagram this week to show support for estranged Tommy Boy rap trio De La Soul and remind fans he’s riding with them.

During a recent “State of the Culture” broadcast, rap veteran Joe Budden kept it 100 on the De La/Tommy Boy drama.

“I’m teary because that’s just depressing to hear, but they sell us depression,” Joe began. “When you think of the stories being the same for this amount of years. Like when you look at De La telling you their battles from 30 years ago.” (“State of the Culture”)

Days prior, De La Soul came forward to address getting its revenue jacked from Tommy Boy.

Throughout the past few months, the group has kept fans updated on the status of its catalog finally going digital.

According to the label, Tommy Boy had postponed De La Soul’s catalog from entering the streaming world.

“Because Tommy Boy has not had the opportunity to sit down together with De La Soul and finalize our negotiations — something we’ve wanted to do for months — we have decided to postpone the digital release of their catalog scheduled for tomorrow,” the statement reads. “We know fans are eager to hear these amazing recordings and we are hopeful for a quick resolution.” (Variety)
