Oct 29 - Nas: I'm Still Calling My Album The N Word - And I Don't Expect It To Sell
 

 
In an effort to further gray the area separating free speech and censorship, Brooklyn a.ssemblyman Hakeem Jeffries is demanding that the New York Comptroller withdraw an $84 million state pension fund invested in Universal Music Group and its parent company Vivendi unless Nas changes the title his new album zzzzzz. ď[They are] profiting from a racial slur that has been used to dehumanize people of color for centuries,Ē Jeffries said. ďIt is time for Nas and other hip-hop artists to clean up their act and stop flooding the airwaves with the N-word.Ē According to the Comptrollerís office, heís intending to the music company and ďurge them not to release the albumĒ under that moniker. Universal had no comment.

Rolling Stoneís Evan Serpick recently spoke to Nas regarding the controversy surrounding the new album. While the MC was reluctant to discuss the albumís specifics (ĒItís not ready for me to talk about. The album is done, basically, but Ö itís a piece of artĒ), Nas spoke openly about his, and the record labelís, decision to stick with the name. His last album, Hip Hop Is Dead, was supposed to don the title, but ďthe climate wasnít right, and Hip Hop Is Dead is also what I was feeling. That went first, and now Iíve got to get this one off my chest,Ē he explains, turning to speak about the rash of hate crimes involving nooses around the country. ďItís the new act of hate, and probably because of Barack Obama, peopleís ignorance and fear and jealousy is creating an outrage throughout the country, and people are reacting by putting nooses up. Itís been a really serious year,Ē the rapper explained.

So what of all the controversy? ďItís like talking to your child about s3x. Itís hard, but itís important,Ē he says. ďItís probably going to make people uncomfortable. I donít expect a lot of people to sell a record called zzzzzz. Hopefully, people can open their minds up and lose some of their fear and deal with it. Itís just an album. Itís one piece of the many things I do, and this will be one of my favorite pieces.Ē And his label is firmly behind him, ďIt will be certain record stores that will be scared to deal with it. The record label is gung ho, and itís ready to go.

...still not sure what point he's trying to get across with something like this.

I'd love to see a white artist drop an album called "N-gga"...what would the feedback be then...if its anywhere along the lines of "outrage"...then ur basically a racist for reacting on them differently based on skin color...there would be zero "im coppin this album".
