Nas has co-signed two up-coming rappers, Azealia Banks and Meek Mill. He says Banks has the total package, while Meek is a voice for the streets.

He spoke on both MCs to Rap-Up, and said on Banks, "I fuck with that '212.' She has incredible star power, you can see it already. I think we need that. To come across the total package in this game, you need more than just a hot 16 and not everybody is blessed with the total package. She has it."

On MMG's Meek Mill, Nas said, "I got my eyes on him. He’s the next one to take this shit over. I’m rooting for him," he continued, "There are no more street orators in the game, who are fresh off the block and can tell us currently what’s going on. So you gotta appreciate him. We have to support Meek Mill’s movement because he’s talking about real life and if we don’t support that, then what are we doin’?"
