Ever since Nas began his venture with Mass Appeal Records he has been building a strong lineup of MCs to represent it. Now, the God’s son has added Harlem spitter Dave East to the roster. East has been making a name for himself with the single “Broke” and “Still” from his summer mixtape, Black Rose, which dropped back in July.
Nas confirmed that he signed East to Mass Appeal’s lineup during his surprise visit to Angie Martinez’s show on Power 105.1 on Oct. 1st. Unfortunately, he was tight-lipped saying “that’s a real new one, I can’t really talk about that one yet.”
Mass Appeal’s lineup is steadily growing with Nas already snagging the likes of Fashawn, Boldy James, Bishop Nehru and hip hop duo Run The Jewels.
There was word that the indie label would drop a compilation album last month but the date was pushed back.
