Nas Chooses Controversial Title

Nas is definitely one of the all-time greats in rap music. However he's been admist controversy because he was selected to appear at a Virginia Tech benefit concert that Dave Matthews set up. The beef came from Bill O'Reilly and other talk shows about how Nas raps about gun use on his albums, and that is at the very core of the VA Tech tragedy. Now Nas is at it again, as he wants to go all out in controversy with the title to his latest album.


"Nas has a new album on the way before the end of the year, and its name is sure to be a conversation starter. During an Oct. 12 concert at New York's Roseland Ballroom, the rapper told the crowd the album would be called "N*gga."

Def Jam had no comment on the title at deadline.

The set will be the follow-up to last year's "Hip-Hop Is Dead," Nas' Def Jam debut. The set has sold 743,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan."

This is the sort of stuff Bill O'Reilly is just waiting for. In brighter news, a tracklist has been released for the upcoming Jay-Z album "American Gangster".Nas
