The submissions will be judged and selected by Nas & Mass Appeal’s own Jason Goldwatch.

One winner will be invited to the YouTube Creator’s space in Los Angeles, CA to collaborate alongside Nas and Jason Goldwatch from Mass Appeal, who will help to bring their video vision to life.

The final music video, and a behind-the-scenes making of video will be premiered on Mass Appeal as well as on the Maker Music YouTube Channels.
