Mass Appeal, Nas’ record label, stopped in on Sway Calloway’s SiriusXM show, Sway In The Morning, to drop freestyle bars, promote their new album and stir up some competition with Top Dawg Entertainment, Dreamville and Young Money.
After Mass Appeal’s Starting 5, Fashawn, Stro, Ezri, Cantrell and 070 Phi, impressed with their two-part “Friday Fire Cypher” and “Five Fingers of Death,” Sway called competitor labels up to the plate.
“TDE I hope you listening, Young Money, whoever, I hope you listening… There might be a new sheriff in town,” he said, daring other groups to go against Mass Appeal’s Starting 5 bar-to-bar.
Cantrell upped the ante, mumbling after his freestyle, “Dreamville, Top Dawg… Mass Appeal’s the last of the real… we’ll give these n*ggas chills.”
TDE, which is made up of Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, SZA, Jay Rock and more and Dreamville, the J. Cole-led label that’s currently finishing up Revenge of the Dreamers III, have yet to accept or decline the challenge.
