Nas Signs Boldy James To Mass Appeal http://rapradar.com/2014/04/17/nas-signs-boldy-james-mass-appeal/ http://rapradar.com/2014/04/17/nas-signs-boldy-james-mass-appeal/#comments Fri, 18 Apr 2014 03:06:27 +0000 http://rapradar.com/?p=294492 Dope Sellers.

During the Mass Appeal showcase last week at SXSW, Nas brought out Detroit upstart, Boldy James. Word on the curb is that Esco signed him to his Mass Appeal imprint. Talking to XXL, Boldy commented on Nas’ endorsement.

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.

UPDATE: As predicted, FSD reports the deal is 100%. Congrats.

Robert De Niro Intros Nas Documentary http://rapradar.com/2014/04/17/robert-de-niro-intros-nas-documentary/ http://rapradar.com/2014/04/17/robert-de-niro-intros-nas-documentary/#comments Thu, 17 Apr 2014 11:36:50 +0000 http://rapradar.com/?p=309814 Rap Hero, Black Deniro.

The 13th annual Tribeca Film Festival kicked off last night at the Beacon Theatre with the premiere of the Nas documentary, Time Is Illmatic. Festival co-founder and Oscar winner Robert De Niro introduced the film and admitted he was 20 years too removed to listen to hip-hop. Would’ve been a nice touch if Esco sported his pink getup from the “Street Dreams” video.

After premiering the documentary, Nas hit the stage and performed Illmatic in its entirety. Tickets for the film’s viewing can be purchased here. Illmatic XX in stores now.
