Nas’ Controversial Album Pushed Back to February

November 26, 2007

Nas’ controversial album Nigger is now dropping during Black History Month.  I wonder what genius marketing mind came up with that plot.  Many black community leaders like the Rev. Al Sharpton have already been outspoken against the album title.  I cannot imagine the backlash there will be now. We all know any publicity is good publicity.

According to MTV he was supposed to drop the album next month but he is still working out his track listing and the album will be expected in February.  A snippet of a song called What It Is was leaked over the net last week but Nas said the song is a fake and he “never rhymed to that beat.” Apparently someone got a hold of his vocals and had some fun with them.  We can expect the first single from Nas in January.  MTV also said Atlanta’s DJ Toomp (T.I., Ludacris) and longtime Nas collaborator Salaam Remi have already contributed tracks, in addition to a slew of new producers. Diddy and his new Hitmen are also scheduled to come on board before production closes in the next week or so.
