i dont think it displays ignorance at all, not like de-valuing education and knowledge of black history as so many do. Nas is partially pointing out how far we've come from when "zzzzzz" was a dereogatory term, we shouldn't be afraid of words just how they're used

Don't blame them blame ourselves for where were at in today's world, Martin Luther did alot for nothing it seems....it's like you all just wanna "Edit >> Undo" what he did.

Not just re-acting to ths nas situation, but to hip hop and young black ppl in general today.
u seem to worry too much about what whites think, who gives a fu*k

Sad, but true.

I love Nas, but I don't understand why he needs this kind of publicity to generate interest in his music. I will still go out and buy this one to support him, but as I fan I have to say that I am ashamed of him for going ahead and naming the album *****. I know he wants to act all tough with that "I don't give a f-k if Universal loses cash" attitude, but Nas is above this.

HHID was garbage. very dissapointing album.

whats the purpose of calling the album n*gga?

what statement is he trying to make. didnt he use the same marketing ploy last year then changed the name to HHID?

i'm a nas fan but that is just stupid.

how stupid is this gonna be when whites and chinese people go in the store to buy it and say

"Can I buy that n*gga behind the counter?"
See I think that's one of the points Nas is trying to bring up. Why are yall trippin over this name? It holds a lotta history and meaning, but now no one gives a sh*t.

And I dont know what's so weird about people who are not black saying the n word. People say it all the time around blacks, no one will do anything unless you really come off like a racist. Now when they're around people they don't really know, they probably won't say it, but that's like a lotta things. I've noticed white people don't do it too much though.

Personally I don't say it cuz that's just the way I was raised. I'm not white but not black either. If I was black I still wouldn't say it cuz that's just my parents and the way I was raised.

Me: You heard that new Nas?
Friend: What cd?
Me: You know.....the new one...

the point NAS is trying to make is that the we shouldnt take the word as it was used for back in the day the more you talk about and get mad about the word more people are gonna use it once you dont care anymore the word will fade away. Why does the government wanna stop everything black people do wearing baggy pants,spinning rims..but they never do anything to stop the KKK from having their rallies

why do people act like the "n-word" is the worst, most horrible word or concept ever created? ok so it was used to "dehumanize" people? i dont think so... i say it and people say it to me and im still fully human in every sence of the word...

if you're gonna go that route then you have to say that Christianity is just as bad because it was used as an excuse for the crusades, wiping out the indigenous peoples of the Americas, and making kidnapped Africans and their descendants believe that they are inferior to the white man.

if people saying that word gets to you, you're missing the real issues. theres still segregation due to redlining and blockbusting, there are still very few black owned businesses the KKK is still alive and kicking, neo-nazis, Jena 6 etc.

If not saying the "n-word" made all this go away i wouldn't say it either but i live in reality and thats not how reality works.

"Gung Ho" refers to a go for it or ready to do whatever attitude....the term originates from the military I believe.....

I WONT DEBATE IF ITS RIGHT OR WRONG. ITS A MATTER OF OPINION. I WILL SAY MY OPINION IS THAT n*gga WASNT AN ILLEGAL TERM BEFORE BLACKS DECIDED TO USE IT TO MAKE MONEY SO LETS NOT PRETEND ITS CHANGED NOW. AS A BLACK MAN, I WOULDNT WASTE MY TIME CRYING OVER THE USE OF A WORD THAT SOUNDS BAD TO ME. I STAND TO GAIN NOTHING BUT SOMEONE NOW MUMBLING IT UNDER THIER BREATH.

EVERYONE WATCHES MOVIES & TV ALL DAY WITH CRIME, s3x, VIOLENCE, DRUGS, PROFANE LANGUAGE, ECT. EVERYDAY. ONE SONG GETS MADE & THEYRE READY TO SHUT EM DOWN. MAKE A MOVIE USING THE WORD EVERY SCENE...... NOMINATE EM FOR A LITTLE MAN TROPHY. COME ON. n*ggaS MIGHT OWN SOME RECORD LABELS, PRODUCE sh*t, OWN STUDIOS, ECT. BUT THEYRE FEW NUMBERS IN THE 'WOOD PRODUCING, DIRECTING, OR THAT OWN STUDIOS. THEY KNOW WHO THEY WANT TO TARGET.

I HATE MAKIN RACIAL ISSUES BUT THIS TO ME IS CLEARLY ONE. THEY WANT TO BAN NAS FOR CALLN AN ALBUM n*gga BUT SOMEBODY CALL THEMSELVES UNCLE CRACKER & GET A MTV AWARD!

It's funny how whites was loving calling us nigg3r for hundred of years but now that we shrugging it off you hate it. You guys are funny.
No what's funny is that I've NEVER said anything about my race here on BX, and ignorant people like YOU make racial a.ssumptions based on God knows what. I've bumped into a lot of your posts, and you really do come off as ignorant. Not surprised.
