Nas Rumored To Be Joining Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music

    This is all in the rumor phase at this point, but there are reports floating around the net that Nas is close to a deal with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music clique. I heard this first last week, but this video over at MTV is being cited as proof that a deal is near, since Nas bends over backwards to praise Kanye in a way he usually doesn’t promote other artists (except AZ). It wouldn’t be so outlandish, given that Nas has had public battles with Def Jam, and he previously joined Murder Inc. He’s one of the few rappers who never really had a group to go to (except for the Firm, I guess), so he’s like the journeyman free agent. And G.O.O.D. is as hot as it gets right now. But I guess we’ll have to wait and see. [MTV]
