If you watched the documentary he released last week, you can’t help but to root for Fashawn. The Fresno, CA native has been up against it from a very early age and, despite making it onto the 2010 XXL Freshmen cover, was so disillusioned with the music industry he was ready to quit rap altogether. Which makes moments like these all the more special.
Fashawn celebrated the release of his long-awaited sophomore album The Ecology with a concert in L.A. last week, where he brought out Dom Kennedy, Aloe Blacc, Blu, Exile and Dilated Peoples. However, the biggest guest of the night was his new label boss Nas, who snuck into the venue and surprised Fash on stage. “I just came here to support one of the nicest n****s that I seen in the rap industry in a long time,” he told the crowd.
