Nas Denies Launching Kings And Queens Record Label

UPDATE: Contrary to Tyga's comments, Nas is not starting a record label.

Nas has reportedly launched a new record label titled Kings and Queens.

During an interview on MTV's RapFix Live with Sway Calloway, Tyga, who collaborated with Esco and Wale on the cut "Kings and Queens," said that the Queensbridge rapper took inspiration from the cut and decided to start his own imprint bearing the same name.

"[Nas] actually has a label called Kings and Queens that he just started, so he was like, it's just cliché that I sent him a song called '[King] and Queens' and he just started a label called Kings and Queens, which is crazy," he said.

Nas previously launched Ill Will Records in 1999 upon releasing his fourth album Nastradamus. In 2005, he launched The Jones Experience under Def Jam.

UPDATE: Contrary to earlier reports, Nas is not starting a Kings and Queens record label. Nas' manager Anthony Saleh spoke with XXLMag.com, denying that Esco launched the imprint.
