Brooklyn based rapper Nas (Nasir Jones) has a Young Adult book series launching soon in conjunction with clothing retailer Mass Appeal.

The new books don’t have a release date yet and Nas is currently touring through the end of the summer with Mary J. Blige.

The Source reported:

“My first kids book is on the way,” mentioning that he and Mass Appeal have launched a kids brand called MAJR.

The description of MAJR reads: “Our mission is to inspire future generations through the creation of unique toys, apparel, and innovative learning tools. Major is here to reflect the diverse hues of both the modern family and popular culture, because education starts in the crib.”

Nas posted a photo of a potential book cover on his Instagram.  The book is titled I Know I Can after his children empowering song, “I Can.” The book series is listed on MAJR’s official website as part of a series “empowering kids to be whatever they want to be when they grow up.”

MAJR launches with a selection of apparel available with matching designs for parents and children. The first toy in the collection, “Boomblox”, a set of building blocks that form into an old-school boombox, has also been announced, with shipping expected to take place in the fall.

“I’ve always understood the limitless power of young people, and being a father has brought it even closer to home,” said Nas. “We’re introducing MAJR to prepare today’s youth for tomorrow’s world. Our goal is to help children of all backgrounds fully realize their potential by tapping into their creativity in new and innovative ways.”
