Run The Jewels Signs Deal With Nas' Mass Appeal Records

Run The Jewels' second album is also set to be released for free, Killer Mike says.

Nas' Mass Appeal Records has signed Run The Jewels to a deal, according to a press release from the label.

The deal links Run The Jewels with fellow recent Mass Appeal signees Fashawn, Boldy James and Bishop Nehru, for the release of the next album by the duo, which consists of Killer Mike and El-P.

Recently, Nas spoke about his plans for Mass Appeal Records.

"I'm excited to be a part of creating and supporting future careers and legacy artists, promoting love and finding new genius to help the world," Nas told Billboard earlier this year. "I'm going to be as involved as I need to be, but I also want to be respectful of the art and give artists the space they need to grow and become themselves."

Killer Mike's Instagram post about the signing is below. The image comes with the following caption: "Oh yeah #RTJ2 is coming out for free download again and we struck a deal with Mass Appeal! :)"
