This is a very important week for Nas, as he is not only celebrating the 20th anniversary of his classic album, Illmatic, but he also officially announced the launching of his Mass Appeal imprint. His first order of business with the label? Sign Boldy James, who has been making quite the splash in the music industry, according to a report from FakeShoreDrive. Boldy and Nas have a lot in common behind the mic, so it will be very interesting to see them work together, and to also see what Nas can build with this label as a whole.
