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.
