Def Jam Prepares To DROP Platinum Selling Rapper NAS!!!

: We're hearing some crazy talk coming out of Def Jam's offices this week. According to one of MediaTakeOut.com's trusted insiders, the top label is actually considering dropping Nas.

According to our insider, the trouble is over the naming of Nas' new album. You see, Nas is refusing to change the name of his new album (which is tentatively called, the N-Word) - and that has the label's top brass furious. The insider told MediaTakeOut.com, "There is no way that we can put out an album with that title. Many retailers have already told us - flat out - that they won't carry [an album with that title] ... Nas' last album [Hip Hop Is Dead] sold pretty well, but not well enough for the headache he's causing [the label]."

And there's more. Our insider claims that there should be an announcement coming from the label this week. The insider told MediaTakeOut.com, "If Nas doesn't change his mind, he'll be dropped. And he doesn't have to much time to come to that realization."

Check back guys. We should have more on this story later today...

Well I am confident that if this infact happens between Nas and Def Jam that he will find his place and home as a very talented and ecletic artist... at another label! The persona I recieve from Nas is that he will remain in his class and will not be shook by some big wigs who's more focused on the money than the creative value of the artist. Nas you've made your mark! and I'll always be a fan. :-)

I hope nobody is surprised by anything those people do to our artist. Jay-Z got played. They used him to sign up a whole bunch of new artist, then showed his black behind the door. We need our own record companies and cut the other man out and focus on the brother man. These people don't care what happens to our music.

@ jayyyyy I like that name better I Like NAS to but sometimes you have to want change in order for this thing to work (the death of the N word) Why is he being so difficult and he will lose money in the end because a lot of stores like walmart Target or Best buy won't carry his album what about the small citys that only has one walmart then what? He's only hurting himself.

Makes perfect sense to me. How can a label promote that album when retailers won't carry it. Why can't Nas just rename it "The N-Word" or "Negro"?

Hip Hop is not dead because of the bootleggers and down loading. It's dead because of the QUALITY of the product. People were making cassette tapes back in the day, sharing albums and taping songs off the radio. This is nothing new. They just want to blame it on technology - when the real story is ---- ANYBODY - can make an album these days ---- the the stuff they are calling "hot", is just that a HOT MESS. What happend to "show business"? Now performers are working the stage in their street clothes. No showmanship, no style. The lyrics of the song - don't inspire you to fall in love or go out and enjoy your life. Albums used to comeout and everything woulkd be a hit on the album. They had a hard time picking which one to play on the radio first. Now, you get the one (1), song and the rest is "filler". And that one song --- isn't even good. It cost the record labels too much money, to keep this "throw it at the wall and see what sticks", marketing strategy.

That is what his ignorant (or ignant) a** gets. If you want to be stubborn for the sake of 'keepin it real' when customers and the viewing public will force you to be employed, you are really a dumb a** n*****. So I guess the title is appropriate but just in reference to Nas's name.

antidumb...... Check out a WORLD RENOWNED SCHOLAR by the name of Francis Cress Welsing. She is one of the few african american psych scholars, and social historians. Very well respected although controversial. She has NUMEROUS research articles on the fear of the impotance of white men as it relates to black men and racism. She argues that alot of social hatred towards blackmen lies in the oppressors facination and fear of the black mans reproduction. Very interesting and has won critical acclaim for her work. OBVIOUSLY Nas is drawing from her countless books. Could it be that he reads the shyt you dont and chooses to articulate it to a target audience you know shyt about! know what you talking about before you are so quick to bump your gums. You make YOURSELF sound like a ass when trying to sound so important. Im just saying!

Nas ain't stupid. HE WANTS to get fired so he can do his own thing and not be obligated to something WACK. It's basically the same ISH that PRINCE did when wanting out of Warner Brothers. He started writing slave on his face and all. JUST when Nas leaves WATCH the banger that comes OUT. He ain't DUMB. Now if DJ wanted to cut off their nose despite their face then DON'T drop him, LET him put it out with THAT title, DON'T promote it and nobody will carry it,therefore FURTHER ruining NAS' career.


truebahamian

If this is true, then it's such a shame. Nas is a purely genius writer, and I love all his work. He's very consciencious and tries to uplift his people, and bring light to the 'unpopular/not as commercially acceptable', but very true struggles that we have everyday. Hopefully he won't let the man change him for a few dollars, and release his album independently. Def Jam doesn't market too well anyway, so I don't see why he can't afford a few low budget videos and try to promote his sh!t himself. Black people need to rise above the mentality that we have to work for the white man. Be our own bosses, and that's the only way we'll change people's perception about us. Otherwise, we have people like LA Reid, Bob Johnson, MTV, etc. showcasing our negative attributes through garbage shows like College Hill & Flavor of Love. When we we learn I ask.

Too bad for Nas, I actually like his music, but he could have been more creative with that title...what was the point of that? Is there an underlying message? Or is he just feeling like "I can name my album what I wanna name it and cant nobody tell me shyt!" Good luck with that...

p.s....fuck mending race relations. what you want him to do hold hand with the klan and sing KUMBAYAH?? Dont push you agenda on others. What Nas is trying to do is wake street dudes up to say look why ya'll fighting with each other take a look at who the real enemy is. Take it or let it alone. If you don't agree with his approach thats ya business but stop trying to tell people how and what direction they should take as a artistand who they should talk to. If you wanna do the unity thing WRITE YOUR OWN DAMN BOOK OR SING YOUR OWN DAMN SONGS. If you don't like his don't buy the shyt and STFU!

Folks big upping these record companies like they took a stand on the side of rightousness by dropping dude for the name of his album. They took a stand on the side of idolotry of MONEY! period. Like you said a artist can say NI$@$ 300X PER ALBUM but oh LAWD it's just too much to name the album that. WAKE THE FUC UP BLACK PEOPLE! sexy chocolate......to answer you question I don't know exactly WHAT nas is going to say on this last album but if PRECEDENT prevails he is a sociallly and politically CONSCIOUS artist so Im almost for certain he will be making a point. Besides he already said that he was in the interviews he's had so far.

He should be dropped. How arrogant of him to name an album the N word. Too many black men and women died hearing that word as their last word. And because he feels it is relevant he can name an album that so he can make more money to spend and NOT reinvest in the Black Community. And I am a NAS fan. And shame on my people for supporting him. This man is a multi-millionaire, most of us struggle just to pay all of our bills. And we support him by buying his album. We didn't choose our race or color, we were born this way, born into world that hates us for something none of us could choose. MY PICTURE IS A WHITE PERSON, BUT I AM NOT WHITE (thank GOD),

cosign W/ truebahimian when will we learn?????? when we start to focus our energy and emotion on some REAL shyt and stop caring so much about a word! the truth....just a question (Im not disrespecting just asking) Do you ever think that there will NOT be racism? Not what should be, but realistically? With that do you think that the word spic, kike, cracka, honkey, wetback, chink, ect will ever cease to exist? (especially if there will always be racist?) So why so much energy just on the word ni$%@a? Don't you think it's more logical to say as black people that it's just a WORD, a hatful, dispicable, racially charged but none the less WORD and treat it as such? Meaning when we cease to give it power by reacting over it it will cease to controll us!

I like Nas, but I cant agree with that title. I can only see that heading to disaster. Somehow I get feeling that he thinks hes making a statement. Its a real sad reality when we HELP our oppressors. Those who label themselves are treated as such. It gets no simpler than that. Whatever creative way hes trying to express himself will be lost to the masses. They will see him as what he calls himself A N/I/G/G/A. WAKEUP NAS IF YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE A REAL VOICE OF HIP HOP OR OF OUR PEOPLE YOU HAVE GOT TO DO BETTER THAN THAT. YOURE JUST MAKING IT OK TO VOICE HATE. IS OK FOR FOLKS TO CALL YOU THAT WHEN YOU PUT YOUR FACE ON A CD TITLED SO sorry Nas cant ride with u on this one that shi.t aint deep

Yes it's true HIP HOP is dead. ans in my opinion it's dead for a numerous of reason and one is a radio. I don't have to buy an albulm because I can flip throught the stations and listen to the songs any time and anyday. I can learn the lyrics by just listening to the radio and TV advertised program. Yes, I said it and it's so true Hip Hop just doesn't sell like it once did. And naming an albulm is one way for it not to sell. I like Nas but I also thought that Nas was better than this. Ni#gger shouldn't be a title of an albulm, regardless how many times you say it. Naming an albulm this really shows ignorance.

Nas is obviously trying to pull off some thought provoking shyt with this title of his. I don't think he should drop the title if he feels that strong about it but if it's gonna make him lose money I don't know. Money ain't everything especially if you already have it so I think if I were in Nas position I'd probably tell them to kiss my ass. I ain't changing shyt. If you let them change the name of your album then hip hop is dead foreal.

It doesnt matter where u are or what race is around u gonna hear some ignorant ass using that word. So to sit here and get on Nas because he's trying to use it to relay his message is totally wrong. Oh and pretty sure that if Def Jam do drop him it wont hurt him. People always think he puttin out albums cause he gotta eat. But see thats where u wrong about Nas.

According to our insider, the trouble is over the naming of Nas' new album. You see, Nas is refusing to change the name of his new album (which is tentatively called, the N-Word) - and that has the label's top brass furious. The insider told MediaTakeOut.com, "There is no way that we can put out an album with that title. Many retailers have already told us - flat out - that they won't carry [an album with that title] ... Nas' last album [Hip Hop Is Dead] sold pretty well, but not well enough for the headache he's causing [the label]." Are they crazy?? It's NAS tho. He's a vet. Nobody is making the numbers they used to, hell it's the digital computer age. People download...and if not hell, people had blank cassettes to record an album or another cassette...the n-word is everywhere


raythedamager

@ SaraEffBaby Ingnorance will never die, just like the N-word. We as humans will never let it. I have never been offended by people using it. Its where they use it and how they use it that offends me.Its bieng taught to young black kids as well as other races. Also its kinda hard for me to get mad about this. Because for yrs record companies have been makin their pockets fat off artists lacing their albums with profanity and the N-word. So now you expect me to be upset and offended to see anther person name their album the N-word(Tupac was first). Def Jam dont care about him using the word if they can make money off it. Only reason their upset is because all these stores are saying they wont carry the album. Think about it now. If these stores took the time to listen to whats on these albums that are already in these stores they probably wouldnt carry any of them. So I guess out of sight out of mind. HUNH?


SaraEffBaby
flag as inappropriate/spamReply

Unfortunately Ray, you speak the truth. However, I think that maybe Def Jam realized that what he was doing is ignorant, regardless of what his intentions may be. The fact of the matter is a lot of people will never listen to the album because of the title and his reason will be lost. Others will use this as an opportunity to slander african americans even more. I am sure there is some white punk out there waiting for the day he can walk into a CD store and ask for "I am looking for N*****." Or something equally grotesque...

darealwifey; you make a good argument however, a person like Nas is intelligent, and proud. For him to compromise will be saying that he can't be him, and thats what make him a lyrical genius to speak his thoughts and feelings with the beauty of urban poetry, jazz inspired rhythm in its purity. Moreover, I feel more artists, actors included should all take a stand and stop compromising themselves for the sake of the mighty dollar. Too many individuals water themselves down and in the end offend and lose the mass who supported them from the beginning when they were more raw and fresh.

Just another sign that the all mighty dollar rules music, not artistic integrity.

Don't blame Def Jam, blame yourselves for buying the bullchit instead of supporting talented artists. Black folks too concerned with what makes them shake their arses in the club then expanding mind and please don't give me this Jay-Z talk, Jay changed his lyrics to sell with these no names, Jay from 99 wouldn't sell now. I applaud Nas for having something Jay lost when he became Joey Corporate: integrity. This isn't just about Nas, it's about your God Jay-Z blowing the Def Jam budget on his albums. Def Jam wouldn't care about the N word if the profits were where they should be.

Antidumb; my feeling is that sometimes you have to take a chance and just put it out there. This is what obviously Richard Pryor did. I'm sure there were those who were telling him to tone it down your jokes will offend people, and for some they did. On the other hand, those who used an open mind came to realize that not only were his jokes true, but funny as hell. Nas obviously have something to say, with an open mind lets get passed the title and hear him. He might speak truths, or if nothing else he will definitely get heads boppin with his nice beats.

We are the only people in the world that would take one of the most derogatory terms used against them and adopt it for ourselves. I would never buy his album if he insists on keeping it's title and would encourage others to take a pass too. That is just pure ignorance...IMHO of course.

@jagman: Yes, Richard Pryor put the "N" word out there a whole lot of times. However, after his trip to Africa he stopped using that word. That spoke volumes about how ignorant he was about his own ethnicity and cultural dynamics to begin with but at least he did learn.

No, it has to many negative stigmas to it, but I see where he is coming from but I also see where Def Jam is coming from also. If they drop him, he will go to another label, I thought he had his own label anyway?

If all of you really think this is about the N word, you're crazy. Do you honestly think after years of calling black women bytches on their records that Def Jam is doing the "right thing"? I respect all your opinions regarding the "N" word, but please don't hurt yourself patting Def Jam on the back. Check the balance sheet, Joe Camel blew the budgets on himself two years in a row with lackluster efforts. That's why Nas is in danger, Hip Hop is Dead sold well, so why would the artist be in trouble? Follow the money and you will always find the answer.

When stores sell playboy or other raunchy magazines they put something over the titties or assez... so you're telling me that they can't do the same with his title? http://www.myspace.com/ibaqtunv http://www.myspace.com/ibaqtunv http://www.myspace.com/ibaqtunv http://www.myspace.com/ibaqtunv “What you keep in the dark comes to light,” a statement in which we’ve all heard and probably have used once or multiple times. However, when we’re actually in a situation in which the truth is distorted or hidden, is it really better to know? Or should we follow the proposal of Mario Winans of not wanting to know? In a previous and highly controversial note “Power of the P-U-S-S-Y” I stated that both men and women cheat, however, I went on to elaborate on the different reasons leading to their infidelities. Women, I said, cheat for a legitimate reason; because we are in search of fulfillment when things in our relationship are continuously neglected. Meanwhile, men cheat because they fall victim of a woman’s ultimate power… Her pussy. Within this past week, I’ve held several conversations with a male individual who states and stands by the statement, “it is in a man’s nature to be with more than one woman.” Scratching my head in utter confusion and divergence, I ask him to elaborate. He then goes on to tell me: “There is no such thing as a loyal or faithful man. A man controls his actions [infidelities] when he feels he has something he doesn’t want to compromise or jeopardize in compensation for his actions; may it be a wife, his family, etc. Although a man may choose to control his infidelities, it doesn’t affect the fact that it’s in his nature to be with more than one woman, thus, any man who isn’t gay or is in his right mind are not exempt and will at some point think about it [another woman].” Still a little thrown off and curious to get a second man’s opinion, I write my good friend Latavious asking him his perspective on this statement. His response, “It's human nature to indulge in carnal desires. It's human nature to be selfish, and to lust and want something that doesn't belong to them. So in that sense yes, I agree. But it's in a woman's nature also.” Is it really in a woman’s nature to be with more than one man? Using Latavious’ perspective to challenge that of Man X, I get the following response; “If dick was in a woman’s nature, this place [the world] would be chaotic. If women loved sex and thought about sex as much as men, there’d hardly be any relationships. Women are negative, men are positive, and the two opposites attract. To love sex and think about it a lot is not in a woman’s nature.” Again I scratch my head. I know a few women who love sex and think about it a lot [I plead the fifth lol]. So why is it too not in a woman’s nature? Of course Man X has an answer for this as well. “Women have sex because they feel like it or are in the mood. Women have sex to satisfy their man or have a reason to do it.” On the contrary, “it’s automatic for men. Men don’t have to know the girl or her name. It’s simply in a man’s nature. Being emotional is a woman’s nature; being sensitive, wanting affection, and nurturing. Women are natural nurturers.” So here I am now sitting at my laptop, my mind swarming with questions, thoughts, and utter confusion. I now second guess the views discussed and argued in my previous note “Power of the P-U-S-S-Y.” Do men cheat because they are weak and fall victim to a woman’s pussy? Or do men cheat simply because it is in their nature? Is it a fact that because we cannot think like men, understand and interpret like men, or relate to men completely [because we are women] that we don’t believe it is a man’s nature to be with more than one woman? If you know your history, you know we’ve all derived from Africa, the Mother Land. You know that polygamy is and has always been practiced here. Have we fallen victim to western world teachings declaring one man to one woman is right and anything different is wrong? Who am I to say? I’m just one woman and I’ll be damned if my man is running around creeping with another woman. And that’s why I say: “If it is a man’s nature to be with more than one woman, then leave me in the dark before a crime comes to light!” Just Kidding

@Antidumb Jay uses the N-word quite frequently.You cant promote an album when the presedent of the label uses all the funds to promote his own and no one elses. Black stations dont want to touch him cause he doesnt make mainstream music. Or as I call it ringtone rap. This generation now dont care about hiphop they wanna hear illiterate ringtone rap. Which degrades women and makes everyone think that blacks are primative minded. As far as the album goes, in the past I have seen several albums that had covers that were deemed as offensive, have another cover to cover it up in the stores. Do you really think that this title is the reason for every thing wrong in our community? I think lack of education & drugs are the problem. Its entertainment just like movies are. Wether they be offensive or not, they always have a message. Do you really beleive that Nas would do this without a meaning? Well I dont... All yall talkin shyt about Nas using nicca but I bet you all have used or had thoughts of using the word to refer to someone else at some point in the day.

Since in a lot of cases the debate may be about the use of the "N" word, I think many of you would be interested in looking up the word on Wikepedia; some very fascinating reading on the origin, variations, and usage of the word throughout history, and around the world. This is by no means a way to change people's minds, but to enlighten ourselves on the history of the word both negative and surprisingly positive.Type in the word n.. i.. g.. g.. a.. or n... i... g...g...e...r... and the wikepedia will come up

Sorry but I dont think the stores that dont carry his album will lose out, Nas is not that strong enough now that missing out on his album will make or break a store. I think the bigger picture is how many of us will buy the album and if so why? Are you buying it becuase he is a good artist or are you buying it because its the talk of the town becuase of the title? I think if Jay did the same thing, it would be blown up 1000% larger than what it is now because of who he is.

A word can't oppress anybody, only a mentality can do that. White folks can start calling themselves cracker and won't be oppressed because they have a unity mentality!

antidumb....I addressed where they should place the album a while ago.(even though you were not talking to me) They should place it right where they place the rap with the bullshy lyrics. WHATS THE DIFFERENCE? nOW YOU ANSWER A ?. How are you soooo damn QUICK to big up Jay when he has put more bullshy out than a lil bit? What because you "define" him as a success cause he had a president by his name. Fuc that Rockafella was a DEVIL who gave alot to charity after he poisoned the world! But on a rare occasion I do agree with you on the diversity in hip hop thing. Just cause it's not mainstream don't make it whack. But to use your OWN words.... "You can't push your IDEALS onto someone else creating an industry of "staleness" with no diversity"..... then PLEASE STOP trying to push your ideas on nas! Let him do him! If you don't like it Dont buy it. And you always talking about "what would Dr. King think...or say"...well what do you think he would say to YOU calling us a WEAK race. My people are by NO MEANS weak. Misguided, apathetic but not WEAK. You so up on language and it's use and the power behind it....be careful what you say ya damn slf.

If Nas was using the "N" word to degrade someone or or a group of people as a whole I could understand different ones view of the word. It has become accepted as a way of expression. The word in it's purist form is derived from the word niger which simply means black or dark shade of color. While it is true many may use the word to offend or stir up contention, but even in its use during slavery time and up to the 20th century that word was used as describing us as a people much how we may call a person of Jewish descent a Jew. It's our sensitivity to the word because of the reminders of what black people experienced when we were known as the "N" word that people still continue to use the word to defame black people. If we educate ourselves on the history on the word, use it to empower you, not allow it to be a successful tool to keep us as a group shackled.

some have commented that it is ignorance to use the "N" word. Well it is only ignorant if you do not know what the word means. Seriously, if we have a problem with someone using the "N" word, you might want to have a problem being known as black because when you look that word up in the dictionary; the definitions are much more harsh than niger with a double g could ever be. If you are ever confronted with someone calling u "the word" in a defamatory way, help them to appreciate the word is pronounced and spelled niger which means black, and yes proud to be so because of our diverse and rich history and my personal contributions to my black culture.

@Jag...thats a good way to look at it, if it works for you, but thats easier said than done. Some people are not going to look at it that way, its all a thing of personal opinions. I will never understand the good in the "N" word, off topic, I guess becuase I was raised by my grandmother and greatgrandmother and they were from the south and if I ever used the word I would get hit upside the head, I only used it once when I was a kid and I paid for it dearly. But todays youth looks at the word as a sign of endearment and it is not, not at all. I dont care how you look at it, personally I think we are doing ourselves more harm when we use the word to describe ourselves. Yes we have a rich and diverse history but its not becuase of the "N" word, its becuase of our ancestors and the struggles they had to go through being called that word and I will never embrase it nor will I find any good in it.

SaraEffBaby; nice to hear, especially from a white person. However, whether we're black or white, we need to continue to educate ourselves on the origin of things in order to understand their true meaning. Its very easy to like or dislike something because someone tell us to, but by examining for ourselves the origin we can determine for ourselves whats good or not good. if ever i was to say something negative about our black society is we do not do enough in depth research into matters, and that is what hurts us most in the long run, myself included.

215girl; I agree it is opinion and a matter of how you look at it according to your upbringing. On the other hand, as a people we have been programmed to look at this word as being something negative, hell our very existence as black people have been programmed into us as being negative. In the movie; "The Great Debaters", Denzel made a profound statement when he said one of the most effective ways black slaves were kept in check was by taking their minds and just leaving strong bodies. We are still in a process of gaining our minds back after having lost it so long ago. in order for us to do so however is by stepping out of our own comfort zones having an open mind and look at things not from the perspective others have drawn for us, but through our own eyes of perception. Again not trying to change a person's viewpoint but just giving food for thought based on my own observations, experiences, and personal research.

Black folks across the United States call each other N!gg@s 24/7-365 days a year with a coke and a smile. Def Jam is just scared of not getting the type of money off of Nas project as they want. People hear the word N!gg@r said at every turn, but now they decide to get all defensive about it being used as an album title. N!gga pleeeeeeeeaaase!

Maybe this was the purpose of naming his album n*gger. to point out the hypocrisy of the industry's use of the word and also deliver a powerful message. these major retail stores have a problem with putting this album on their shelves because of it's title but has no problem if the word is constantly used in the album

NAS has got to learn to pick and choose his battles wisely. The title of the album is not going to make it sell, and he doesnt have the kind of power at Def Jam to be making demands. Sometimes you just gotta play ball. The content of the album is the most important thing. Changing the name of the album isnt going to change whatever message he's trying convey. NAS is just being hard-headed, and he is to old for that.

It's funny how things come full circle, I remember listening to hip hop from the early 80's through the 90's and our older ones then were saying the same thing to us what some of you are saying about this generation of hip hop.Back then, it was all about the lyrics with a smooth beat. heck even the beefs were handled different. for example; Kool Moe Dee vs. LL Cool J classic of all time. These cats just went back and forth with lyrics. Nowadays, someone's liable to get physically hurt during beefs between artists. No matter how much hip hop changes, or don't change all can agree that with its commercial success, hip hop is here to stay.(off subject)

A lot of people judge Tupac on his music later in his career, but Pac was deep from the jump with songs like Violent, I don't give a fvck, Words of Wisdom etc. I applaud Nas for getting back to shocking this country, and opening more eyes to the ills of society as well as bring his perspective to an on going problem with this word! What other way to talk about it but to address it head on!

First of all Def Jam dont give a fucc about Nas or any of their other hoos that arent profitable. This is a pimp ho game and the artist plays the ho and the better the ho the more they get paid. Nas if he used he conscious eye would see this as a blessin get away from the pimp and do yo own thang uncensored if you see fit. The problem is a lot of these dudes cant survive without pimps. They scared they would get they punk azz kicked and lose that f@ggoty @zz lifestyle, but time will tell, if this story is even true. But what about this name yo next album Black Bit@# and follow that with Dumb Mutha F*@kas and finish wit We All Dying because thats whats happenin. The words themselves have no power but at some point we must move forward and begin thinking and communicating on a higher plain especially brothas or sistas that consider themselves somewhat enlightened or educated. The bafoonery is no longer needed everybody sees and understands b.s. somebody betta step up and raise the levels of communication. As a man thinketh in his heart so is he. Nas you name yo album Ni@@a brotha you betta bring it none of that half and half ish you been releasin.

people who are mad that Nas wanted to name is album N*gger obviously dont know much about Nas as an artist and dont really listen to his songs and his rhymes..Nas is an intelligent MC who is socially conscious and doesnt intend to disrespect the black race by doing this..and why are you hypocrites mad at him for naming his album N*gger, yet you bump songs in your car and shake your asses to songs by these rappers and R&B artists that use that word in their songs?..dont act like you havent done that..if your mad about Nas using this word, get mad at ALL of the other artists that use this word in their lyrics..dont buy their albums, dont download their songs, and dont bump their songs in your car.. if you were a true hip hop head, or actually listened to his lyrics, you wouldnt be in an uproar about this or insulting him..Nas has covered every range of topic you could think of..hes a philosopher..its sad that Nas isnt selling albums, yet idiots out there are making Soulja Boys song the most downloaded song of the year..what the f*ck? hip hop is garbage these days and if Nas disappears, then the state of hip hop will truly be in a decline

I agree with staypoppin01. I am sooo tired of hearing this so called "music" today. Nas has have some nice songs as well as others but back when.... the entire albulm was nice. I can't even let my teen listen to one song because of all the b's and nig's and poppin' booty and gun issues in the song. what my child listens to in my home is up to me. if she hears it outside then so be it but she will not say my mom allowed me to listen to xyz. parents have to take control BUT THEN AGAIN THE CHILDREN ARE HAVING CHILDREN.

The majority of hip-hop products are bought by non-blacks. In the words of Langston Hughes,"The word nigger to colored people of high and low degree is like a red rag to a bull. Used rightly or wrongly, ironically or seriously, of necessity for the sake or realism, or impishly for the sake of comedy [,] it doesn't matter. Negroes do not like it in any book or play whatsoever, be the book or play every ever so sympathetic in its treatment of the basic problems of the race. The word nigger, you see, sums up for us who are colored all the bitter years of insult and struggle in America." Riddle me this, WHEN AND WHY HAVE OUR FEELINGS CHANGED ABOUT THIS WORD? WHAT'S YOUR EXCUSE? Chow for now. B. Shug
