MCMI Report: DJ Khaled – Nas Album Done ft. Nas

DJ Khaled – Nas Album Done ft. Nas

DJ Khaled dropped his ninth studio album, Major Key, yesterday, along with the single Nas Album Done ft. Nas. We’ve already been hearing “For Free” ft. Drake and “I Got The Keys” with Jay Z. What makes this latest single off the album crazy is that it is simultaneously a single off Khaled’s album and advanced marketing for Nas upcoming album. At first I was like, “Wait, is this the first single from the Nas album?” But no, it’s DJ Khaled’s record, featuring Nas, talking about his album, which is up next. Pretty slick, works for both of them.

It’s a cool record. Nas is dope. I don’t gotta review it, ’cause you can hear the song for yourself, above, and form your own opinion (you will anyway, no matter what I say, right?).  I will say Nas definitely shows us his flow is up to date and he is not coming with an ode to the ’90’s. He also nicely puts some people in their place, referencing all the trends he started that others often imitate.

This basically did the job, because it has me waitin’ for the actual Nas album. Only one question. If Nas’ album done, where is it? Can we get a buzz single at least? Is you finished or is you done? … LOL, I’m just playing. But I’m sayin’!

Coming off of the success of NehruvianDOOM, Mass Appeal’s very own Bishop Nehru releases his new project Nehruvia: The Nehruvian EP — now available for download HERE. To accompany the 8-track EP, the New York MC has also released a brand new visual for “Users” — as he takes a pensive journey through the lush landscapes of Japan.

Some old, some new. Just too raw sonically for the album & I wanted to put more music out,” as Bishop Nehru describe the new project. 

Later this year, Bishop Nehru will be dropping an album executive produced by Nas. Check out the EP & video and let us know what you think. Thanks! 

De La Soul x NAS = God It (FREE DOWNLOAD)

De La Soul x NAS = God It


Oh man this track is siiiiiiiick! … I can’t believe they are giving this away for free. Oh, I see.

“Cause you gone’ get hooked on this verbal dope we cook, thas how it’s gone’ be, baby!”

True. One listen, you will get hooked. The beat, the music and every single verse is instantly addicting. They still “God It“, baby boy!

One of the reasons for De La Soul’s recent mega-success at connecting with fans is the personal approach they took on their recent Kickstarter campaign, which has brought in half a million dollars in support so far. So I’m just going to let them tell it.

What’s up y’all,

While busy at work, we also like to play. This song is not on the new album, but an indication of good music to come.  The song was produce by G_Force and you may recognize our featured guest. Get the song for free here.

We’re still in Atlanta, GA recording and it sounds amazing!  We can’t wait to get this new album to you. There’s only 10 days left to support our Kickstarter campaign so if you haven’t done so, please pre-ordered the album now by clicking the link below.


Thank you, we love y’all!

We Are De La Soul

De La Soul was my favorite group when they first came out. Other groups fought for my #1 spot over the years, but they became my favorite group a second time 10 years later. Now in 2015, they are my favorite group again. If you haven’t pre-ordered their new album on Kickstarter, what are you waiting for?

Nas responds to J. Cole – Let Nas Down (Remix) – Made Nas Proud

This is how Men handle their business, with words, not with bullets. What could have marinated into beef, instead evolved into a healthy conversation. Props to J. Cole for his insightful single and salute to Nas for his heartfelt response.
