FUTURA emerged as a graffiti artist in 1970s NYC, pioneering abstract elements in the genre. He broke ground by exhibiting in contemporary galleries during the early 1980s, seen at Patti Astor's Fun Gallery and Tony Shafrazi Gallery. In 1981, MoMA PS1's New York/New Wave exhibition showcased Futura alongside Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kenny Scharf and others. Curated by Diego Cortez, this landmark event marked his significance.



Nas, the timeless poet & rhyme-master, debuted with "Illmatic" in 1994, followed by 14 albums, 8 of them multi-platinum like "Stillmatic" and "God's Son." With 16 GRAMMY nominations, he secured his first win for "Best Rap Album" with 2020's "King's Disease." Its sequel, "King's Disease II," also thrived, produced by Hit-Boy and Gabriel Zardes. Recently, he unveiled "King's Disease III," another Hit-Boy collaboration with no features. A Hip Hop legend, Nas is a Mass Appeal Records co-founder, actor, and producer with an impressive catalog.
