Nas' imprint Mass Appeal continues to grow and blossom. After signing Boldy James, Nas finally made his signing with 2010 XXL Freshman Fashawn official. This signing marks as Nas' second move to his label.

The lyrical marksman has been itching to drop his sophomore project The Ecology for some time now. He will finally have the opportunity to do so under Nas' label Mass Appeal as his release date has been set for September 30th. His album will feature the likes of Nas and Aloe Blacc.

An ecstatic Nas voiced his excitement over the signing of the West Coast rapper in a statement.

"Fashawn is one of the most underrated in the game,” said Nas. “The world is gonna know soon. We're excited to have him as a part of the family."

After being wowed by Boldy James and Fashawn as SXSW, Nas made it his priority to sign the rappers.

In just a matter of months, Nas has bolstered his label and seems primed and ready to make more moves. Let's see what Esco has in store next.
