Man as long as he makes great music I don't care, though I wish he would be more clear on why he titled the album this.

gtfoh hip hop is dead had no buzz. he went back and bi*ched that hip hop was dead boom people start talking about him again

now with this crap if you think this isnt some attention whoring from nas then your blind. Wearing that shirt in front of a predominantely white audience at the grammy's instead of the naacp or bet awards means one thing attention whoring

he couldnt even articulate his point on cnn talking about black people losing the right to vote in 30 years on email chain bullsh*t
When was the last time Nas had a dance single? Which one of his songs has a dance or a catchy hook? Maybe in the 80's this would be true. Nowadays if you dont have a dance and a hook no one cares unless you are a fan. Kelis would have to release a s3x tape or show her pus*y to get more press. Britney and Soulja Boy Tell'em is running this. Black people don't want depth, they want to Superman that ho!!!!

ah, on the contrary if a white person sees "zzzzzz" on an album, i think that would motivate him to buy it since the white man tends to be more speculative of these things. it does seem nas is on a publicity stunt though. you must be kidding me if the album "hip hop is dead" doesn't make you want to listen to the reasons an artist would consider this genre dead. but for nas it could matter less, his name sells itself and he wouldn't need to sell more records cause he already is the GOAT. now all he is really trying to do is kick knowledge instead of proclaiming the title of the greatest.
The Hiphop market is aimed at black and white kids between 12 -19 nowadays. How many deep white people buy hiphop? Hiphop is Dead might make you want to listen to it, but not buy it. Most people are like fu*k you Nas!!! HipHop is alive!!! They will say this while singing "Shorty got low low low low low"!!!!

"Hip Hop is Dead" wasn't the opposite of trying to sell records. It was a fu*kin gimmick and so is this new album. Now I know Nas will try "kick knowledge" and explain how the word "N.igger" is wrong on the album.

But he also knows that places like Best Buy, Walmart, and Target will not want to carry an album with such a title. Controversy sells people.

So It will make the news once it drops and he's hoping that Bill O'Riley, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson as well as the rest of America jump on the band wagon and argue over Moral Integrity and Freedom of Speech.

The end.

P.S. - To all of you saying white people are scared of this believe me they're not. The fact is, most if not all white people have come to expect this word uttered by rappers and with that said most white people will make this an issue of how Rappers are promoting racial slurs. (Point fingers at you)
If what you all was saying is true then no white people would listen to rap cause every album I ever heard has the n.igger in it.
Young People don't watch Fox News or CNN. They watch Boondocks ands 106 and Park. They want to dance, They don't want to listen to lyrics. I can't remember the last time Nas had a big publicity for an album as far as having a dance record or something with a catchy hook. That is why Nas hasn't had a liquor, an energy drink, sports bars, or any thing like that. I can't see little kids going to the store asking for the nas n word album. It's also not an fourth quarter album where sales are the biggest.

NAS IS A VERY CONSCIOUS RAPPER, HE VERY WELL KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING. N*GGER NEVER REPRESENTED A GROUP OF PEOPLE. HUNDREDS OF YEARS LATER, AND IT'S STILL THE MOST POWERFUL WORD IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE.

check this out. I'm black and I absolutely hate the fact that nas is calling his album the zzzzzz. Their's already other races walkin around calling each other n*ggaz like they black!!!!!! Even celeberties are getting caught saying zzzzzz. Why the fu*k would u put the n word out their like dat. Just leave well enough alone. he gonna use zzzzzz as a cd title?? Man fu*k nas! The only cd i have of his, is stillmatic because of either and after i bought it i realized the whole cd was crack. Hiphopisdead was a lame fu*kin song and i didn't buy that bullsh*t cd. Now zzzzzz?? Nas had 1 hott cd and thats it. This is why this n*gga is lame and is only good when he's featuring on someone's track.

fu*kin clown with his girlfriend at the grammy's wearing shirts that say zzzzzz and you're black!!!! this n*gga nas is wacker than wack. Man, all he wants is ATTENTION. fu*k yo album n*gga.

Now i think jay z pac and biggie are the 3 goat's, but to say nas is whack is just being ignorant of his music. Illmatic, it was written, I am and stillmatic ARE ALL 5* albums.

if you disagree go listen to your flo rida and have a nice life

Read the responses in this thread.

These very responses are the reason why NAS IS DROPPING THE ALBUM AND WHY HE SHOULD.

Why are we as black people afraid of the word n1gger? Look up n1gger in the dictionary. It means an ignorant person.

Like Nas' said in his interview, n1ggers are White,Black,Asian, & Latino. Everyone who's ignorant can be considered a n1gger.

What gave the white man so much power to have our black people upset and high strong over ONE GOD DAMN IDIOTIC WORD?

This is the point Nas is trying to get across, but you dumb as "NlGGERS" are too stupid to get passed the word "n1gger" and look at the real message behind the album.

How can we ever move forward if we are constantly stuck, bi*ching about our past.

Support the movement, atleast Nas is trying to send out a message instead of the typical cliche bullsh*t thats being put out now.

Good for Nas'. And I hope white people DO buy the album, so they can get the message that they are n1gger too.

I honestly question the future of our black people, with how our current music and the influence it has on us, and some of the examples in this thread alone that shows, that you people couldnt see a good message if it smacked you across the face.. Obama might truely be the LAST of our true leaders...

Some of you seriously need to go to college and get educated.

it is just a publicity stunt, if u listen to nas's reasons for naming it that, is pretty weak.......only rapper powerful enough to actually have an effect was Pac....and he's gone, hence nas isnt gonna chance a word that people yelled out before they lynched my people by dropping a rap album.....and im a fan of nas's music

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.
clown what do you think grups like public enemy were doing back in the day. pushing the envelope tackling issues.

its just that commercial rap and the musicscape these days have gotten use to be safe and making a certain type of music. Radio friendly music

if you honestly believe this is a marketing ploy by such an artist like Nas. you obviously dnt listen to Nas.

hiphop is dead was a very appropriate title and subject matter. talking about the state of commercial music.

hiphop has always been around and will always be it just that it got totally sqeeze out of th emainstream. and thats what Nas was talking about

of course it wasnt saying HIpHOP doesnt exist. b/c it does but it hadnt for a while in the main stream for years now.

and since Nas came out with that album. now you see artist checking their subject matter for this songs. hiphop coming back from the underground and back to the mainstreem

so know more about an artist before you start talkin dumb sh*t
