Nas going with “Nigger”

Nas -Nigger
In an interview today with Mtv News, Nas clarified the situation regarding naming his album “Nigga” and has said he is now naming his album “Nigger”. Yes, that’s right. Nigg-ER.

Nas Thursday morning said,

I don’t know where that [report] came from and neither does Def Jam.

Many bullshit hiphop sites put out an unconfirmed report earlier on in the week stating that representatives close to Def Jam exec L.A. Reid said that they had no release date for Nas and that they would never allow him to release such an album with said title. Really.

Nas went on to say that the album is completed and basically explained the albums significance as follows,

I’m talking to the streets. Stay out of our business. You ain’t got no business worrying about what the word ‘nigger’ is or acting like you know what my album is about without talking to me. Whether you in the NAACP or you Jesse Jackson. I respect all of them … I just want them to know: Never fall victim to Fox. Never fall victim to the shit they do. What they do is try to hurry up and get you on the phone and try to get you to talk about something you might not know about yet.

Hmmm sounds like what I was referring to yesterday when I got heated over that Fox News bullshit segment on Nas (read it here). Great minds think alike. Or maybe Nas reads YoRapper.com. Nas also went on to say.

I wanna make the word easy on muthafuckas’ ears. You see how white boys ain’t mad at ‘cracker’ ’cause it don’t have the same [sting] as ‘nigger’? I want ‘nigger’ to have less meaning [than] ‘cracker.’ With all the bullshit that’s going on in the world, racism is at its peak. I wanna do the shit that’s not being done. I wanna be the artist who ain’t out. I wanna make the music I wanna hear.

Whoa. Dude is on some real nigga shit. I personally could care less what his album is called as long as the music is hot. Although I do feel ways when I hear a white boy say “nigga” but its cool as long as they down with hip hop. However, to the real racists that say “nigger” with malice, I suppose Nas is trying to downplay the word to show it has no effect. Interesting approach. It’s like in the Art of War (that’s a book) where you make your weaknesses your strength. Sorta like when Biggie said, “Heart throb never black and ugly as ever”. Anyway, I am sure Fox News will be all over this. Get ready for another in-depth report on the lyrics to one of Nas’s greatest hits of all time “Shoot ‘Em Up”. Sarcasm for you smart dumb niggas of course.
