Feb 3 - Nas Jokes About Album Name
 

 
Rapper Nas is working on his new album, and he's trying to get the word out.
The N-word, that is.

The hip-hop provocateur tells us he's planning on calling the CD simply "N-." Except, he'll be filling in the blank.

"That's the name right now," he said. Just to make sure we didn't mishear him, he spelled the racist epithet for us.

"I don't care about sales," he explained at Wednesday's MAC Cosmetics party for Sean (Diddy) Combs' new fragrance, Unforgivable. "Well, tonight I don't. I never was a big sales dude, so it never really mattered."

The slur, formerly used by Southern lynch mobs, has become a common greeting among black youth. But the Rev. Al Sharpton, also at the Core Club party, still finds it profoundly offensive.

"I'm astonished by the psychological gymnastics some people perform to make that self-denigrating word acceptable," he told us. "No other race does it. Why is it accepted? In an industry that makes Michael Jackson take out a word that was offensive to Jewish people, why does it sanitize a word that continues to be used by the Ku Klux Klan when it attacks our people?"

Last night, Jana Fleishman, a spokeswoman for Nas' label, Def Jam, was taken aback when we informed her of the proposed title. But after talking with the rapper, she said he changed his tune. "Nas says he was being facetious. He just started recording last week."

Meanwhile, Nas and Diddy were both amused to see Kanye West portraying himself as Jesus Christ on the cover of Rolling Stone. A 1999 video aping the Crucifixion had the two older rappers hanging on crosses.

Asked if Kanye stole their idea, Nas said, "I loaned it to him."

Diddy agreed: "It was a cool cover to me. I'm a fan of his, so it's all good."

its a dumb title and unfortunately so many of this generation and some in the mid 20's or 30's use the N word recklessly and too many of us(Blacks) forget the origins of that word........

Rappers didn;t make the word "n*gga" cool dog how old are you 15?!??!
Naw im not gonna insult you like that but damn man c'mon you can't honsetly believe that bruh

d*ck Gregory is best known for his book "zzzzzz" well besides them weight loss shakes theyw as hyping in "House Party"So it really surprises me that AL Sharpton would have something to say about this....d*ck Gregorywas an activist too, Nas could have went along the lines of that book for the theme and tone of the whole album....Al sit ya a.ss down somewhere and work on ya IMMACULATE perm..and Call Jim Jones when you do it, he needs ya guidance
