Nas Is Invested in Mass Appeal—Literally

It’s been 11 years since Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones, aka Nas, graced the cover of Mass Appeal Issue #18 along super-producer and fellow Queens native Large Professor. Today, Forbes announced that Nas is invested in the future of Mass Appeal Media — literally. Yeah, we’ve known about this for a while. We’re good at keeping secrets, but the time was right for this one to hop out of the bag. We’re building over here. Staying humble. Keeping our heads down. Grinding. Building community. If you’re riding with us, THANK YOU. If you’re sleeping on us–WAKE UP!

Forbes asked the emcee & emerging entrepreneur why he choose to invest in Mass Appeal:

“I always liked what they represented,” says Nas. “They invested into the culture … I saw their vision for what they planned and I thought I could add value across the board.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!

Head on over to Forbes to read the full interview.
