Feb 19 - Nas' N*gger Album In Jeopardy, ''We'll Have To See,'' Says L.A. Reid
 

 
Nas has stirred up controversy with the title of his upcoming album, n*gger. Amid speculation about the album's future, SOHH caught up with Island Def Jam chairman Antonio "L.A." Reid to discuss the status of the Queensbridge emcee's upcoming release.

 As SOHH previously reported, Nas and his wife Kelis hit the Grammy red carpet wearing t-shirts emblazoned with the title of his forthcoming album, n*gger. Though Nas seems confident that his controversial title will fly, Reid is not so sure. When asked if the new Nas album will be released with the n-word title, Reid replied with, "We'll have to see."

 What's your opinion of Nas' album title? Take our survery here]

According to Reid, the album, which was originally slated for a December 2007 release will drop sometime this spring. "Hopefully we'll get it in April or May," he told SOHH exclusively. "Something like that, somewhere around there. It's getting there, we're getting close."

"Expect Nas to educate us without preaching to us," Reid continued. "Expect him to give a point of view that maybe the world hasn't thought about. Expect him to really enlighten us."

In addition to the highly anticipated release from Nas, Reid is looking forward to all of the Island Def Jam releases scheduled for 2008. "We have Mariah, we have Janet which comes out at the end of February," he says with enthusiasm. "We have a Ludacris album coming up. Lionel Richie, Young Jeezy, Rick Ross. We have a lot!"

damn i misread the title, i thought that nas' album was on the game show jeopardy.

he should keep the title. and bring the most artistic and thought provoking material ever. When critics ie bill o'riley who dont know who NAS IS will try and talk sh*t until they learn that its not some soljah boy sh*t and its actually the best album of the year. that real hiphop!!!

I hope it doesn't drop. I'm not hating, Nas just doesn't have what it takes to shed any new light on that word. It's just attention whoring on his part.

That's all it is. Too bad for him our culture isn't shocked by much anymore...hopefully it'll tank and he'll get a reality check.

Saying HipHop is Dead is actually the opposite of trying to sell records. That is kind of a slap in the face to everyone who doesn't agree with that. Naming the album "Oprah", "American Idol", or "Dances and Hooks" would be a way to sell albums. Naming an album "zzzzzz" alienates the main market you need to sell records which is white people. If you go platinum or beyond, white people have to buy a lot of your records to make that happen.

I gotta say that I'm anticipating a Ludacris album a LOT more than a DTP album, I've never cared for any of the others on DTP besides Luda
