Nas Drops Controversial Album Title
After much controversy, Queensbridge emcee Nas has changed the original title of his album. The project, which was entitled [insert N-word], will be untitled when it hits stores on July 1.
"It's important to me that this album gets to the fans. It's been a long time coming. I want my fans to know that, creatively and lyrically, they can expect the same content and the same messages. It's that important," Nas said in a statement. "The streets have been waiting for this for a long time. The people will always know what the real title of this album is and what to call it."
"It's like talking to your child about sex. It's hard, but it's important," the rapper said in an October interview. "It's probably going to make people uncomfortable. I don't expect a lot of people to sell a record called [N-word]. Hopefully, people can open their minds up and lose some of their fear and deal with it. It's just an album. It's one piece of the many things I do, and this will be one of my favorite pieces."
