Nas Confirms The Lost Tapes 2, Said To Have Signed Fashawn & Bishop Nehru

A new Billboard report expounds on Nas’ Mass Appeal Records partnership. Mr. Jones’ latest label is the latest iteration of Decon, a label who worked throughout the last 12 years with Black Milk, Gangrene, Alchemist, Freestyle Fellowship, Jurassic 5, Dilated Peoples members, and Roc Marciano, among many others.


Nasty Nas is said to plan to make Mass Appeal Records, which is distributed by Sony RED, his full-time home, after his Def Jam Records deal expires in 2015. Additionally, the label claims Mass Appeal, which has Nas as an investor and executive, has signed both Fresno, California veteran Fashawn, as well as Bishop Nehru. On an upcoming M.A. compilation, Nas will cover a Gang Starr track (given everything else here, wager to guess which one?)

Heads may most of all value the following news: Nas is planning a Lost Tapes 2 project. The sequel to his cult-championed Columbia-backed 2002 LP is slim on details, but fans can guestimate what works (known and unknown) may be included.

Any thoughts or predictions?
